Divide both sides of the equation by $3$

#### Explanation:

If $33 = 3 q$
then
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} \frac{33}{3} = \frac{3 q}{3}$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} 11 = q$

or, in the more common sequence: (remember if $a = b$ then $b = a$)
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} q = 11$

$11$

#### Explanation:

given, $33$ = $3 q$

or q = ${\cancel{33}}^{11} / {\cancel{3}}^{1}$ = $11$
