Let that unknown number be x.

$\frac{3}{7}\times x=9\\ \\ Multiply\hspace{5}both\hspace{5}sides\hspace{5}by\hspace{5}7\\ \\ \frac{3}{7}\times x\times7=9\times7\\ \\ 3x=63\\ \\ Divide\hspace{5}both\hspace{5}sides\hspace{5}by\hspace{5}3\\ \\ \frac{3x}{3}=\frac{63}{3}\\ \\ x=21$

So, the number is 21.
