Common sense tells me that the first one should read 7x5. You have it reversed.
Your second question should be answered in here somewhere:

A math tutor should be along soon to give you further ideas.

Yours would be right if it read 5 less seven times x. But it does not say that. See Writeteachers comment.
For any number n, there exists a number 1/n such that n* 1/n=1
example: Find the multiplicative inverse of 7.93
7.93 ( MI)=1
MI=1/7.93= .126103405...
