Let m be the number of moons orbiting Mars.

9m will be the number of moons orbiting Saturn and it should equal 18.

Answer:

9m = 18 <--

If you then wanted to solve this, you would divide both sides by 9:

m = 18/9

m = 2

P.S. Mars does indeed have 2 moons, Phobos and Deimos. But Saturn actually has *82* moons with confirmed orbits that are not embedded in its rings.
