# How do you express the phrase "7 minutes the quotient of 3 and v" as an algebraic expression?

Sep 21, 2015

$7 - \frac{3}{v}$
$7 - \left(3 \div v\right)$
The quotient is the result of division. So the quotient of $3$ and $v$ can be expressed as $\frac{3}{v}$ or $3 \div v$. Once you have values for $v$, you can find the actual quotient.
