Answer:

#2.1/2.1^2 = 2.1/(2.1xx2.1) = 1/2.1#

Explanation:

It is very useful to know some of the squares and other powers by heart.

#21 xx21 = 441#

In this case we could notice that the same numbers are used, just with decimals.

There are 2 decimal places in 4.41 and only one in 2.1

This leads us to realise that #2.1 xx2.1 = 4.41#

And consequently: #2.1/2.1^2 = 2.1/(2.1xx2.1) = 1/2.1#
