Answer:

#3/4=0.75#

Explanation:

Divide #3# by #4# to get #0.75#

The division in this case is a bit tricky due to the fact that you have to divide something small #3# into something bigger #4#.
enter image source here
as you can see at the start we borrow a zero to make our #3# into a #30# but we have to "signal" this loan by adding a #0,# into the result; then we take another zero (in red) to form a #20# and finish our division.
