Q:
# What Divided by 16 Equals 77?

Accepted Solution

A:

What Divided by 16 Equals 77?
Methods
Setting up the problem:
In a problem like this, the βwhatβ means that weβre working with a variable. The most common variable used in math is βxβ. So, we could say what number, x, when divided by 16, equals 77?
Solving What Divided by 16 Equals 77
Hereβs how you would set up this question as an equation:
x
16
=
77
\frac{x}{16} = 77
16 x β = 77
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, we can do that by multiplying both sides of the equation by 16, resulting in this equation:
x
=
77
β
16
x = 77*16
x = 77 β 16
Then we simplify and find our answer:
x
=
1232
x = 1232
x = 1232
So, the answer to the question βWhat divided by 16 equals 77?β is 1232.To prove this, we can take the original problem:
x
16
=
77
\frac{x}{16} = 77
16 x β = 77
And insert 1232 in the place of x:
1232
16
=
77
\frac{1232}{16} = 77
16 1232 β = 77
Because this is true, the answer must be correct.
