Answer:

#8.16#

Explanation:

It is uncomfortable to divide by a decimal.

Adjust the values as shown:

#0.359/0.044 xx 1000/1000 = 359/44#

Now divide #359 div 44 # to get #8.15909....#

The 'nearest hundredth' = means #2# decimal places

The third decimal place is more than #5#, so we round up.

#8.159090.. ~~ 8.16#
