# How do you find the quotient of a number and 12?

Jun 14, 2018

$\frac{x}{12}$

#### Explanation:

The key realization is that the word quotient tells us to divide, and we can model our unknown number with the variable $x$. We now have

$\frac{x}{12}$

With this expression, we can plug in any value for $x$ to see what this evaluates to.

Hope this helps!
