Q:
# 64 Divided by What Equals 38?

Accepted Solution

A:

64 Divided by What Equals 38?
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 64 by to equal 38?
Solving 64 Divided by What Equals 38
Here’s how you would set up this question as an equation:
64
x
=
38
\frac{64}{x} = 38
x 64 = 38
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 64:
64
=
38
∗
x
64 = 38*x
64 = 38 ∗ x
Then we can isolate x on the right side of the equation by dividing both sides by 38:
64
38
=
x
\frac{64}{38} = x
38 64 = 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
=
1.684
x = 1.684
x = 1.684
