Answer:

#2.4/6 = 0.4#

Explanation:

You can't divide BY a decimal, although you can divide INTO a decimal. We need to change the 0.6 to a whole number. This can be done by multiplying it by 10.

This is seen easier if we write the division in the form of a fraction.

#(0.24 xx 10)/(0.6 xx 10) = 2.4/6" Note that" 10/10 = 1#

#=2.4/6 = 0.4#
