15. There are 72 seats on an airplane. There are 6 seats in each row. How many rows of seats are there on the airplane?

**Solve for the unknown that makes the equation true.**

16. 9 x 6 = ?

17. 7 x ? = 84

18. 30 / 5 = ?

19. 5 / ? = 5

20. ? / 8 = 12

## Answer Key

1. 5 x 3 = 15; 15 balls

2. 3 x 7 = 21; 21 cupcakes

3. 9 x 4 = 36; 36 desks

4. 6 x 5 = 30; 30 computers

5. 8 x 2 = 16; 16 pets

6. 24 / 4 = 6; 6 school buses

7. 40 / 8 = 5; 5 tables

8. 32 / 4 = 8; 8 rows

9. 49 / 7 = 7; 7 serving trays

10. 18 / 3 = 6; 6 tricycles

11. 10 x 8 = 80; 80 tiles

12. 5 x 2 = 10; 10 bicycle wheels

13. 24 / 8 = 3; 3 toy cars

14. 36 / 4 = 9; 9 cupcakes

15. 72 / 6 = 12; 12 rows

16. 54

17. 12

18. 6

19. 1

20. 96
