Accepted Solution

A:

93 Divided by What Equals 68?
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 93 by to equal 68?
Solving 93 Divided by What Equals 68
Here’s how you would set up this question as an equation:
93
x
=
68
\frac{93}{x} = 68
x 93 = 68
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 93:
93
=
68
∗
x
93 = 68*x
93 = 68 ∗ x
Then we can isolate x on the right side of the equation by dividing both sides by 68:
93
68
=
x
\frac{93}{68} = x
68 93 = 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
=
1.368
x = 1.368
x = 1.368
