6 less than the quotient of y and 11

Work Step by Step

Two things are being divided, so we say the phrase "the quotient of" and then list the two things being divided, in this case y and 11. Note, because we want the resulting fraction to be y/11 and not 11/y, we list the y first, saying "the quotient of y and 11." However, the expression shows that 6 is being subtracted from y/11, so we denote this by saying the phrase "6 less than" the quotient of y and 11.
