Set our number as x and turn the words into math:

\(\frac{1}{4}x=3*19\)

\(x=3*19*4\)

\(\frac{1}{6}x=\frac{3*19*4}{6}\)

\(\frac{1}{6}x=38\)

.

It is: 1/4  NOT  1/14.

Let's say "the number" is x.

 

1/4x=3 times 19

1/4x=57

--Multiply 4 to each side--

x=228.

 

Now find 1/6 of 228.

228 times 1/6 = 38.

 

So our answer is 38
