See the step by step solution

## Step-1 – Apply the concept of quotient

When a number is divided by another number, it gives a resulting number. The number, that is being divided is called dividend. The number, by which the dividend is being divided is called divisor. And the resulting number found by division is known as quotient.

## Step-2 – Example for the quotient

In the division $12÷3=4$, the number 12 is called dividend, the number 3 is called divisor and the resulting number 4 is called quotient.

## Step-3 – Evaluate the expression

To evaluate the expression $\frac{32}{x}$, substitute the value of x as 4 and divide the numbers as shown below,

$\begin{array}{l}\text{\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}}\frac{32}{x}\\ =\frac{32}{4}\\ =8\end{array}$

Thus, the value of the expression is $8$. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
