6004.14...

#### Explanation:

Using a calculator, you get the answer.

$\frac{42029}{7}$

You can use long division as well

You use $7$ to divide each of the numbers. If it not possible, you look at the next number and read it as one number.

For instance, $7$ cannot divide $4$ without a remainder of $0$, you write $0$ or leave it blank.

Thus, you try to divide $42$ by $7$ to get $6$. When you do that, you get a remainder of $0$.

Bring down all that is left and apply the same process.

When you get to $7$ divided by $1$, you put a decimal point which allows you to put a zero by the $1$ and continue....
