A fraction answer is more accurate than a rounded off decimal.
$\frac{25}{618} , \frac{5}{127} , \frac{25}{148}$

#### Explanation:

The quotient is the answer to a division.
I assume that fraction answers are required.

As these calculations are unrealistic to simplify manually, we will need to use a calculator, but we must remember the following

When dividing by a decimal we can make the divisor into a whole number by multiplying by a power of 10.

A fraction answer is better than a rounded off decimal.

$\frac{47.5}{1174.2} = \frac{47.5 \times 10}{1174.2 \times 10} = \frac{475}{11742} = \frac{25}{618}$

$\frac{8.43 \times 1000}{214.122 \times 1000} = \frac{8430}{214122} = \frac{5}{127}$

$\frac{4.38 \times 10000}{25.9296 \times 10000} = \frac{43800}{259296} = \frac{25}{148}$
