$3$

Explanation:

You need to change the numbers to avoid the division BY the decimal.

Multiply by 1, but used in the form $\frac{10}{10}$

$\frac{2.7}{0.9} \times \frac{10}{10} = \frac{27}{9}$

$\frac{27}{9} = 3$

Now you can divide as usual.

Dividing INTO a decimal is not a problem, but division BY a decimal is. However this can be changed.
