# How do you write the following as an algebraic expression using x as the variable: A number of apples divided into 12 baskets ?

Mar 28, 2018

$\frac{x}{12}$
Let $x$ be the number of apples since the question did not define the number of apples as a constant, we shall make the number of apples the variable.
When the number of apples is $x$,
$\frac{x}{12}$ is the expression for the number of apples divided into $12$ baskets.
