Five times a number is divided by $7$ more than that number.   If the result is $0,$ then what was the original number?

Let's represent the number as �x. The problem can be expressed as an equation:

5��+7=0x+75x​=0

For this equation to equal zero, the numerator (5�5x) must be zero. Therefore, the original number is �=0x=0.
