$0.75 \text{ or } \frac{3}{4}$

#### Explanation:

This is a trick to make the calculation process simpler to do in your head. I am showing you every step.

Write as: $\frac{3.75}{5}$

To 'get rid' of the decimal multiply by 1 but in the form where

$1 = \frac{100}{100}$ giving

$\frac{3.75}{5} \times \frac{100}{100} \text{ " = " } \frac{375}{5} \times \frac{1}{100}$

$375 \div 5 = 75$

Now we apply:$\text{ } 75 \times \frac{1}{100} = 0.75$
