    Use a systematic approach. We know that plus means an addition. This eliminates the last one (4). Quotient means a division is involved. this eliminates 1)

    The remaining choices do indicate a division but one has a division that includes the complete sum divided by r. The problem states that only r is to be divided by 14. this would then eliminate 2).

    3) states that we are to add 5 and the quotient of r/14, isn't that what the problem is asking?

    The quotient is the result of a division. since r is an unknown, we cannot put the results but just the indication of the operation.

    \[r \over 14\] r is referred as the dividend 14 is referred to as the divisor the result of the division is referred to as the "quotient"
