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

Let's call that number "n"  

 

Five times the number is 5n  

7 more than the number is n + 7  

 

            5n  

          –––––  =  0  

           n + 7  

 

The only way this can happen is if n = zero
