Q:
# 4 Divided by What Equals 76?

Accepted Solution

A:

4 Divided by What Equals 76?
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 4 by to equal 76?
Solving 4 Divided by What Equals 76
Here’s how you would set up this question as an equation:
4
x
=
76
\frac{4}{x} = 76
x 4 = 76
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 4:
4
=
76
∗
x
4 = 76*x
4 = 76 ∗ x
Then we can isolate x on the right side of the equation by dividing both sides by 76:
4
76
=
x
\frac{4}{76} = x
76 4 = 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
=
0.053
x = 0.053
x = 0.053
