The number is 49

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Let the number be x

From the question,

of x = 21× x = 21

= 21

Multiply both-side of the equation by 7

× 7 = 21 × 7

(On the left-hand side of the equation, 7 at the numerator will cancel-out 7 at the denominator leaving us with just 3x)

3x = 147

Divide both-side of the equation by 3

=

(On the left-hand side of the equation 3 at the numerator will cancel-out 3 at the denominator, while on the right-hand side of the equation 147 will be divided by 3)

x =

x=49

Therefore the number is 49
