Math riddle

This is a little math riddle based on something neat I discovered last night.

Using the following algebraic formula, turn the number 666 upside down:

[(666)N]÷Q=999
Q =
N =


Curiously enough, the formula can be reversed and 999 can thus be turned upside down. ( IE, [(999)Q]÷N=666 )

The first person to correctly answer for Q and N wins an icon made by me!

(How strange this is, hated math as a child, didn't pay attention, now need a calculator to solve simple math problems in many cases... but I love algebraic riddles.)
