Answer:

#0.78688...#

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#

#=> 720 // 915#

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