A:
62 Divided by What Equals 95? 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 62 by to equal 95? Solving 62 Divided by What Equals 95 Here’s how you would set up this question as an equation: 62 x = 95 \frac{62}{x} = 95 x 62 ​ = 95 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 62: 62 = 95 ∗ x 62 = 95*x 62 = 95 ∗ x Then we can isolate x on the right side of the equation by dividing both sides by 95: 62 95 = x \frac{62}{95} = x 95 62 ​ = 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 = 0.653 x = 0.653 x = 0.653 Practice Other Division Problems Like This One If this problem was a little difficult or you want to practice your skills on another one, give it a go on any one of these too!
