Answer:

#50,000,000#

Explanation:

When we are faced with a division by a decimal, change the denominator to a whole number.

#(50,000)/0.001 xx 1000/1000 = (50,000,000)/1#

=#50,000,000#

Notice that #1000/1000 =1# so by multiplying by 1, we are not changing the value of the fraction at all, just what it looks like.
