x/12 - 95

It is x/9 - 7.

If you think about it, it makes sense. when you divide a whole number (call that number X) by any number less than it(call that Z), the quotient (answer) is smaller than the first number. For example, 10/2=5, 12/4=3. Also, the lower the Z number is (ignoring if it were 1), the higher the quotient is. Therefore, since fractions are lower than 0, the quotient will be higher than the X number.

Given that X - 2 = X/6 + 8Multiply each term by 6, then 6X - 12 = X + 48,Subtracting X from each side and subtracting 12 from each side, 5X = 60, so X = 12

Assuming that he quadratic is 2x^2 + x - 15, the quotient is 2x - 5.

Either 8 x - 2 or - 2, depending on whether you are dividing 8 by x or x by 8. x 8

(20 + x)-3

X = number. 5/X - 12 ======

2 * x = 15 - 3 2x = 12 divide both sides by 2 x = 6

To say that 2 is less than twice a number and four means, algebraically, that 2 < 2x + 4. This simplifies to -2 < 2x or x > -1. This is not a quotient, however, so perhaps your question was not clearly worded.
