  • yes 9 times 3 = 27

    In your problem the 9 is the quotient. Some number divided by three = 9. (write that out as n/3 = 9) So multiply each side of the equation by 3 and you get n = 9x3 or 27

  • Im aware quotient is divide but was confused how to set it up....

    Would it be something like this:

    N+3=9

    (looking for positive feedback from someone who may want to help)

  • A quotient is the answer to a division problem, right? So 9 = y divided by three? So y is 27 as I see it.

  • does y need to be "n" since it means number? or does that not matter??

    If i wrote it out is it

    n=9.3 ( . means times) I just need to make sure im setting it up correctly

  • set it up as n/3=9

    multiply both side by 3

    so n=27

    n doesn't mean number, it is just the unknown that you are looking for. It could be x, y, z, a...whatever.
