ProM is right, divide 7 by both sides

Report as
Divide both sides by 7 by putting a line under each side and writing 7 under the line. Then cancel and reduce the fraction.

42 divided by 7 equals 6.
So, 7x6=42.

6 because 7x6 = 42

seven times 6 equals 42.

X=6. You can think of it this way: 7 x ???= 42

x=42/7=6

Report as

7x=42
=>42/7 => 6

Report as

X = 6 cause 42 / 7 = 6 :)

Report as

replace 6 for x. 7*6=42

Report as

7x = 42

x = 6

Report as

x=6

Report as

you divide both sides by 7 and you answer will be x=6

Report as

7 x = 42
x = 6

Report as

7x=42

42 / 7= 6

you divide 7 from 7 so it cancels out
you divide 42 by seven and u get

x=6

Use a calculator...

You want to isolate the x to do that you do the opposite of what is being done to x and cancel it out, right now it is saying 7 times x is equal to 42, the opposite of multiplication is division so you divide x by 7, you balance out the equation by dividing the seven on the other side too. like this
7x=42
7x/7=42/7
x=6
you can also think of it as a fill in the blank problem,like
7 times what(?) will get me to 42
7(?)=42
7(6)=42
