Answer:

#37 div 25x# or it can be written as #37/(25x)#

Explanation:

A quotient is the answer to a division and a product is the answer to a multiplication.

The word "AND" will usually tell you which numbers are being multiplied or divided.

Let's call the number #x#.

'The product of a number and #25#' is #x xx 25 = 25x#

The 'quotient of 37 and the product above' is:

#37 div 25x# or it can be written as #37/(25x)#
