What value divided by 22 equals 9?
In other words, what would the dividend be if the divisor were 22 and the quotient 9?
To find the answer, just multiply the divisor with the quotient: 22 × 9 = 198
To prove this, let's compute 198 divided by 22: $\frac{198}{\mathrm{22}}=9$
How does it work?
Asking which value divided by 22 gives a result of 9 is equivalent to solving the following equation:
$\frac{x}{22}=9$
- We need to isolate x, so multiply both sides by 22: $\frac{22x}{\mathrm{22}}=22\times 9$
- $\frac{22x}{\mathrm{22}}$ is equivalent to $\frac{22}{\mathrm{22}}x$, which simplifies to $1x$ (or just $x$).
- Thus: $x=22\times 9=198$
So, if the divisor is 22 and the quotient is 9, the dividend is 198.
