What value divided by 47 equals 3?
In other words, what would the dividend be if the divisor were 47 and the quotient 3?
To find the answer, just multiply the divisor with the quotient: 47 × 3 = 141
To prove this, let's compute 141 divided by 47: $\frac{141}{\mathrm{47}}=3$
How does it work?
Asking which value divided by 47 gives a result of 3 is equivalent to solving the following equation:
$\frac{x}{47}=3$
- We need to isolate x, so multiply both sides by 47: $\frac{47x}{\mathrm{47}}=47\times 3$
- $\frac{47x}{\mathrm{47}}$ is equivalent to $\frac{47}{\mathrm{47}}x$, which simplifies to $1x$ (or just $x$).
- Thus: $x=47\times 3=141$
So, if the divisor is 47 and the quotient is 3, the dividend is 141.
