I wanna get this down so I can move on but I'm not sure how to research it because I don't know the name of this.
Ex. 4/x=2. I know x=2. What is the name when dividing into x

I know I multiply both sides by x to simplify

What is the name when dividing into x
it's not "dividing into x", it's "dividing by x" ... in other words, x is the divisor.

also, 4 is called the dividend and 2 is the quotient.

A number to be divided by another number is called dividend.
A number by which another number is to be divided is called divisor.
Here, $$\dfrac{4}{x}=2$$

4=dividend
x=divisor
2=quotient

I hope it' ll help.

$\dfrac{4}{x}=2$
when we divide 2 on both sides, 2 will multiply with $x$, then $2x$ is the product of 2 and $x$, and it will denominator of 4
