Q:
# 14 Divided by What Equals 35?

Accepted Solution

A:

14 Divided by What Equals 35?
Methods
Setting up the problem:
In a problem like this, the “what” means that we’re working with a variable. The most common variable used in math is “x”. So we could say what number, x can we divide 14 by to equal 35?
Solving 14 Divided by What Equals 35
Here’s how you would set up this question as an equation:
14
x
=
35
\frac{14}{x} = 35
x 14 = 35
The goal of the problem is to solve for x. To do this we need to change the equation so that x is alone on one side of the equation.In this case, it can be done in two steps. The first step is to multiply both sides by x to isolate 14:
14
=
35
∗
x
14 = 35*x
14 = 35 ∗ x
Then we can isolate x on the right side of the equation by dividing both sides by 35:
14
35
=
x
\frac{14}{35} = x
35 14 = x
When we simplify the new equation, we can solve for x. In this example, we will round to the nearest three decimal places if that’s needed.
x
=
0.400
x = 0.400
x = 0.400
