Answer:

#800#

Explanation:

To do this without a calculator, you must rephrase the question. Instead of doing #24/0.03#, rewrite this as

#24 / (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 100/3#

#100/3 times 24#

is the same as

#8 times 100 = 800#
