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

14/x = 21 Multiply both sides by x. 14 = 21x 14/21 = x 2/3 = x Let's see the proof: 14/(2/3) = 21 14 * (3/2) = 21 42/2 - 21 Yep! 2/3 is correct.
