my son has a math problem i need help with. 21/14=7 what is the /

The / sign means division.
However, 7 is not the correct answer.
Is it possible you've misread the sign? Both 21 and 14 are evenly divisible by 7. 
All you have to do on those problems is put an operation symbol in place of the / and see if it works

that is the exactly what was on the paper

Wait, I forgot / means division, I thought you needed to fill in the correct symbol
