traslate into number terms: the product of a number and 3 is 5 less than the quotient of a number and 5

Answer #1

3x= x/5 - 5

Answer #2

(x/5) meaning division, not a fraction.

Answer #3

3x=5x-5

Answer #4

3x=x/5-5

Answer #5

it says ‘quotient’…dosent that mean there is going to be division somewhere? lol

Answer #6

The first person is more right than the others:

3x=5/y-5

The / is a keyboard division symbol in this case. The x is the variable for the product of 3 and some number The why is for the quotient of 5 divided by the other unkown number
