2/6 divided by what equals 3/4?

Here we will show you how to calculate "what" in this sentence: "2/6 divided by what equals 3/4?" We start by making this word problem into an algebraic equation where "what" is the variable "x".

(2/6) / x = (3/4)

To solve this equation, we want x alone so we start by multiplying x on both sides like this:

((2/6) / x)x = (3/4)x

Which equals:

(2/6) = (3/4)x

Then we divide each side by 3/4 to like this:

(2/6) / (3/4) = ((3/4)x) / (3/4)

(2/6) / (3/4) is 4/9 and ((3/4)x) / (3/4) leaves x which means we end up with x = 4/9. Therefore, the answer to "2/6 divided by what equals 3/4?" is as follows:

4/9

It is always good to double-check your math to make sure you did it right. When we entered 4/9 for x in this equation (2/6) / x = (3/4), we get the following true equation which means our math is correct.

(2/6) / (4/9) = (3/4)
