    Answer: 17000000 ounces of gold were mined in that country that year.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let x represent the number of ounces of gold that were mined in that country that year.

    Approximately 1,870,000 oz of gold went into the manufacturing of electronic equipment in a certain country in 1 year. This was 11% of all the gold mined in that country that year. This means that

    11/100 × x = 1870000

    0.11x = 1870000

    x = 1870000/0.11

    x = 17000000
