Feb 16, 2017

#### Answer:

$0.08 \div 0.0012 = 66.67$

#### Explanation:

As $0.08 = \frac{8}{100}$ and $0.0012 = \frac{12}{10000}$

$0.08 \div 0.0012 = \frac{8}{100} \div \frac{12}{10000}$

= $\frac{8}{100} \times \frac{10000}{12}$

= $\frac{2 \cancel{8}}{1 \cancel{00}} \times \frac{100 \cancel{00}}{3 \cancel{12}}$

= $\frac{200}{3} = 66 \frac{2}{3}$ or $\cong 66.67$
