Here we will show you and explain using simple algebra how to calculate "what" in this sentence: "42 is 6 times as much as what?"

When using algebra to solve a word problem, read the word problem thoroughly to make sure you understand exactly what it is asking.

To clarify, "42 is 6 times as much as what?" is the same as "42 is 6 times as much as x", "What is x?" or "6 times a number will have a product of 42 - what is that number?"

Based on that information, we created the following equation to solve "42 is 6 times as much as what?":

6 • x = 42

To solve for x, we divide both sides by 6 to get x by itself. Here is the math to illustrate:

6 • x = 42

6x = 42

6x/6 = 42/6

x = 7

**Thus, the answer to "42 is 6 times as much as what?" is 7.**

In other words, 42 is 6 times as much as 7 because 6 times 7 equals 42. Note that the answer is rounded if necessary.
