    Quotient is the answer in the operation of division. If n represents the number, then quotient of a number and 3 would be: n/3

    To get this: two times the quotient of a number and 3, multiply n/3 by two. What would that look like? Post what you think it is, okay?

    No. A. 2(n-3) is two times the difference of a number and 3. Try again.

    You can, I think. It's division. Write out what you think is the answer.

    Use this for the fraction symbol. / as in the fraction n/3 which is n divided by 3.
