A hundred and one
by fifty divide,
And if a cipher
is rightly applied,
The answer is one from nine.


Answer

CLIO
Using Roman numerals, a hundred and one is CI and fifty is L. Dividing CI by L gives CLI. Add cypher (0) to the right gives the answer: Clio, being the name of one of the nine muses from Greek Mythology.
