THE answer I came up with is 1/27.
4/9 divided by N = 12
4/9 divided by N multiplied by N = 12 multiplied by N
4/9 = 12N
4/9 divided by 12 = 12N divided by 12
4/108 = 1/27 = N

4/9 divided by 1/27 = 12       4/9 x 27/1 = 108/9 = 12

4/9___=12 let the space no. to b found=x then Question becomes............4/9dividedx=12.....next step....equation becomes 4/9into 1/x=12 ..............i.e 4/9x=12.........next ...........4/x=12into9...........i.e 4/x=108..........or 1/x=108divided by 4..............1/x=27..............and x=1/27 i.e 0.037..............inshort if we divide 4/9 by 1/27 then answer is =12

Method we will talk is the inversion of multiplication and division.

Corresponding to the problem,steps to be taken

1. let the required number be x.

2. Then, you question would be 4/9/x = 12

3. Using the inversion method, then it would be 4/9x = 12

4. Then simplify you will obtain your result and the correct answer is 1/27.

HI    CALL MISSING NUMBER    X

4/9 DIVIDED BY  X =12

MULTIPLY BOTH SIDES BY  X

THIS GIVES  4/9 = 12X

THEREFORE   X =4/9X12       X =4/108     X =1/27

4/9 DIVIDED BY 1/27  = 12
