#### Explanation:

We need to change the calculation so we are not dividing by a decimal.

Multiply the numerator and denominator by 100.

This is the same as multiplying by 1, so we will not change the value, but only what the numbers look like.

Now we are dividing by a whole number and not a decimal.
