# Which of the following best describes the English expression the quotient of four and the sum of a number and three? A. 4/x+3 B. x+3/4 C.4/x+3 D.x/4+3

Answer: Quotient means division, which is obvious by all the division answers.
It says "Quotient of 4 AND ..." which means that four will be on top and everything else will be on the bottom.

So now you have:

four over something unknown.

Reading the rest of the question, "the sum of a number and three"
"a number" is an unknown, so we can set that to x
and this x is being added to by three, so therefore
x+3 would be in your denominator.

You final equation should look like this:;

Michael breeds chickens and ducks. Last month, he sold 5 0 5050 chickens and 3 0 3030 ducks for \$ 5 5 0 \$550dollar sign, 550. This month, he sold 4 4 4444 chickens and 3 6 3636 ducks for \$ 5 3 2 \$532dollar sign, 532. How much does a chicken cost, and how much does a duck cost?

X-chickens
y-ducks
Last month: 50x+30y=\$550
This month: 44x+36y=\$532
50x+30y=550;/10⇒5x+3y=55⇒5x=55-3y⇒x=11-3/5y
44x+36y=532;

x=11-3/5y
44*(11-3/5y)+36y=532⇒484+9.6y=532⇒9.6y=48

x=11-3/5y
9.6y=48⇒y=48/9.6⇒y=5
x=11-(3/5)*5⇒x=8
