    It is 56... this is x/7=8 so x=8*7. Easy as pie :)

    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
