if you divide this number by 2 you will get 3 multiplied by 6. Subtract 3 groups of 3 and you will get 3 multiplied by 9.
I am so confused trying to help my 8 year old figure this out i have come up with 9 then 36 then 0

math help please 
Reiny,
Some number divided by 2 must equal 18
Obviously that number must have been 36
check: what is 36 รท 2 ?
3 groups of 3 would be 9 , so 9 subtracted from 36 leaves 27.
Is what is left 3 times 9 ? 
math help please
