1. The difference between three times a number and 11 is 10.
Whould it be: 3x  11 = 10?
2. One more than the difference between 18 and seven times a number is 9.
Would it be: 1 + 18  7x = 9?
3. 26 more than the product of a number and 17 is 42.
Would it be: 26 + x + 17 = 42?
4. Twelve less than the quotient of a number and 8 is 1.
Would it be: 12  x/8 = 1?

Ms. Sue,
4. Quotients are the answers to a division problem. Your first answer was on the right track, except that it didn't show 12 less than the quotient.

Dab,
12 + x/8 = 1
Since you'll later turn the + into a 
OR
x/8  12 = 1?

Ms. Sue,
This is correct:
x/8  12 = 1

Dab,
Now how would you go by solving, x/8  12 = 1?

Math (Translate each sentance into a equation) 
Ms. Sue,
x/8  12 = 1
Multiply both sides of the equation by 8.
x  96 = 8
x = 96  8
x = 88
Proof:
(88/8)  12 = 1
11  12 = 1
