$0.78688 \ldots$

Explanation:

To divide rational numbers, simply shift the divisor's and the dividend's decimal point until the divisor becomes a whole number. Then proceed with dividing the numbers

For the case of $0.72$ and $0.915$, we need to shift the decimal point 3 places to the right for $0.915$ to become whole.

$0.72 / 0.915$

$\implies 720 / 915$

When the numbers are divided, we should get the above answer.
