Subject: BEDMAS solving for X

Hi, I am having a problem understanding why when using BEDMAS the text book example of the following question has used bedmas and reduced the calculation to 4/3.
Text book formula:
X/200,000 = (X  90,000) / 150,000
X = 4/3 * (X  90,000)
X = 360,000
My solution: I always thought that when you do something to one side you do the same to the other. Why would the equation bring the 200,000 / 150,000 down to 4 / 3
I would think it would look something like this.
X/200,000 = (X  90,000) / 150,000
X = 200,000*((X  90,000) / 150,000)
