X/8 = 7 well in general X can be anything. In math its just X and you will solve the equation for X by multiplying each side of the equation by 8.

In applied math X could refer to any quantity such as the cost of candy or some other quantity. Hope that helps.

x=56

x/8=7

(to cancel the eight out you multiply it to the seven, that gives you 56 and leave only the x on the other side..to leave you with )

x=56
