    If x = 14 were a solution to x/9 = 4 then it must be the case that 14/9 =4. Is that true?

    I think so. This is what I'm guessing.

    if you have x/4=6 and you know 4 * 6=24 then what is x?

    and is that equal to 4? No. It is not the case that 14/9 = 4. Therefore x = 14 is not a solution to x/9 = 4

    ok so if you want to solve x/9=4 then all you have to do is figure out what blank times blank is
