$800$

#### Explanation:

To do this without a calculator, you must rephrase the question. Instead of doing $\frac{24}{0.03}$, rewrite this as

$\frac{24}{\frac{3}{100}}$

When dividing by a fraction, you can rewrite the division as a multiplication, just by swapping the numerator and denominator- this turns into

$24 \times \frac{100}{3}$

$\frac{100}{3} \times 24$

is the same as

$8 \times 100 = 800$
