What number must be multiplied by 42 to get the difference of the numbers 500 and 38?

Let's make a complex equation for clarity:
Х*42= 500-38
To find the answer, you must first find what is the difference between the numbers 500 and 38. 500-38 =462.
Now write down the simple equation after finding the difference:
Х*42=462
X is the first factor. Find the unknown multiplier by dividing the value of the product by the known multiplier:
Х=432:42
Hence X=11.
You can do a check:
11*42=462
462=462
Correct answer.
