Answer:

0.075

Explanation:

Given: #0.054/0.72#

I do not like dividing decimals and avoid it if I can

Multiply by 1 but in the form of #1=1000/1000#

#0.054/0.72xx1000/1000" " =" " (0.054xx1000)/(0.72xx1000)" "=" "54/720#

'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#color(brown)("Note that 54 is the same as "540xx1/10)#

'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Write as #540/720xx1/10#

But #540/720 -> 3/4 ->0.75#

so #540/720xx1/10 -> 0.75xx1/10 = 0.075#
