Answer:

Just divide #100# by #6#.

Explanation:

If you want to make it look better, do:

#6x = 100#

#x = 100/6#

#x = 16.6666...#

#x = 16.7" "# (2d.p.)

So

#? = 16.7" "# (2 d.p)

Answer:

The #?# is worth #50/3#

Explanation:

#color(blue)("This bit is very important")#

#color(brown)("The = means that the value on its left is exactly the same as the")#
#color(brown)("value on its right. So we need to find some way of turning 6 into 100")#
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#color(blue)("Answering the question")#

So in steps we can do this:

If we divide 6 by 6 we get 1

If we multiply 1 by 100 we get 100

This looks like

#6-:6xx100=100#

This is the same as

#6xx1/6xx100=100#

#6xx100/6=100#

So your #? = 100/6#

Both 100 and 6 are even so both are exactly divisible by 2

#?=(100-:2)/(6-:2)#

#?=50/3#
