Explain how to translate the statement into an equation. Use n for the variable.

Sixty-three is the product of nine and a number


  1. Since we’re looking at the product of 9 and an unknown number (n), you write out an equation stating 9 times n gives you 63. Then you solve for that.

    9 * n = 63
    9n = 63
    9n/9 = 63/9

    Therefore n = 7
