Q:
# 8 Divided by What Equals 67?

Accepted Solution

A:

8 Divided by What Equals 67?
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 8 by to equal 67?
Solving 8 Divided by What Equals 67
Here’s how you would set up this question as an equation:
8
x
=
67
\frac{8}{x} = 67
x 8 = 67
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 8:
8
=
67
∗
x
8 = 67*x
8 = 67 ∗ x
Then we can isolate x on the right side of the equation by dividing both sides by 67:
8
67
=
x
\frac{8}{67} = x
67 8 = 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
=
0.119
x = 0.119
x = 0.119
