Feb 24, 2016

$\approx 433.33$

#### Explanation:

To simplify this, rewrite $6.5$ as $65 \cdot {10}^{-} 1$ and $0.015$ as $15 \cdot {10}^{-} 3$

Then $\frac{65 \cdot {10}^{-} 1}{15 \cdot {10}^{-} 3} = \frac{65}{15} \cdot {10}^{2}$

$= \frac{\cancel{65} 13}{\cancel{15} 3} \cdot {10}^{2}$

$\approx 4.33 \cdot {10}^{2} \approx 433.33$
