Homework Help: Middle school algebra

Posted by Morgan on Monday, December 5, 2011 at 5:07pm.

Please help:
Problem: 14 divided by a number is 21. What is the number?
my teacher says the answer is 2/3 but I don't get that answer.
I set it up:
14/n= 21
Then tried solving as:
(n/14)(14/n) = 21/14
My answer = 1 1/2

What am I doing wrong? Thank you
