    One person who is struggling with their maths, has not got a teacher, and who is looking for help cannot do this calculation

    You, as an A* person, cannot conceive of the struggle this person is facing - your rather derogatory comments are not useful

    Your "answer" is not useful either as the other posters on the thread were trying to help the OP understand some general principles

    All people is Slough are smart?
    After watching The Office for a number of years my perception is somewhat different.
    I suppose my conclusion is as valid as expecting everyone to understand basic Algebra.

    People who attend Eton often go on to great success. The evidence is there if you look for it.

    Have you managed to understand the process involved in solving this now, or have you been distracted by the people trying to derail the thread?

    x/9 = 2 tells you that when x is divided by 9 you get the answer 2.

    Division and multiplication are "opposite" operations that cancel each other out - if you want to undo the operation of dividing by 9 then you need to multiply by 9 to get back the original quantity.

    So, if you understand that multiplying x/9 by 9 gets you back to x, also remember that what you do to one side of an equation you have to do to the other. So what do you have to do to the number 2 to get the value of x?
