Predict: I predict that this question will be about finding the missing value.

Read: Fill in the missing number 36 divided by something = 4

Clarify: I had nothing to clarify.

Big question : What is the missing value.

Mathematicians Toolbox: I used working backwards.

Solve: First, I knew that 4 times something equaled 36 and I know to check if the multiplication is correct by using division. So I divided 36 by 4 and got 9.

Summary: The strategy of working backwards to get an answer of 9.
