Q:
# 97 Divided by What Equals 30?

Accepted Solution

A:

97 Divided by What Equals 30?
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 97 by to equal 30?
Solving 97 Divided by What Equals 30
Here’s how you would set up this question as an equation:
97
x
=
30
\frac{97}{x} = 30
x 97 = 30
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 97:
97
=
30
∗
x
97 = 30*x
97 = 30 ∗ x
Then we can isolate x on the right side of the equation by dividing both sides by 30:
97
30
=
x
\frac{97}{30} = x
30 97 = 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
=
3.233
x = 3.233
x = 3.233
