34 Divided by What Equals 16? Methods Setting up the problem: In a problem like this, the “what” means that we’re working with a variable. The most common variable used in math is “x”. So we could say what number, x can we divide 34 by to equal 16? Solving 34 Divided by What Equals 16 Here’s how you would set up this question as an equation: 34 x = 16 \frac{34}{x} = 16 x 34 ​ = 16 The goal of the problem is to solve for x. To do this we need to change the equation so that x is alone on one side of the equation.In this case, it can be done in two steps. The first step is to multiply both sides by x to isolate 34: 34 = 16 ∗ x 34 = 16*x 34 = 16 ∗ x Then we can isolate x on the right side of the equation by dividing both sides by 16: 34 16 = x \frac{34}{16} = x 16 34 ​ = x When we simplify the new equation, we can solve for x. In this example, we will round to the nearest three decimal places if that’s needed. x = 2.125 x = 2.125 x = 2.125 Practice Other Division Problems Like This One If this problem was a little difficult or you want to practice your skills on another one, give it a go on any one of these too!
