# What is 50 divided by 0.02?

Feb 11, 2016

This is 2500.

#### Explanation:

$\frac{50}{.02}$ can be thought of as $\frac{5000}{2}$

Do you see why? We just multiplied the top and bottom by 100 to get integers for both the numerator and the denominator.

This looks much nicer and much easier to solve.

$\frac{5000}{2} = 2500$
