Accepted Solution

A:

63 Divided by What Equals 89?
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 63 by to equal 89?
Solving 63 Divided by What Equals 89
Here’s how you would set up this question as an equation:
63
x
=
89
\frac{63}{x} = 89
x 63 = 89
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 63:
63
=
89
∗
x
63 = 89*x
63 = 89 ∗ x
Then we can isolate x on the right side of the equation by dividing both sides by 89:
63
89
=
x
\frac{63}{89} = x
89 63 = 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
=
0.708
x = 0.708
x = 0.708
