Answer:

#4#

Explanation:

Given: #0.08 -: 0.02#

#0.08 = 8/100#

#0.02 = 2/100#

#0.08 -: 0.02 = 8/100 -: 2/100#

We can change a division problem into a multiplication problem by multiplying the first term by the reciprocal of the second term:

#8/100 -: 2/100 = 8/100 * 100/2#

We can cancel/reduce:

#8/cancel(100) * cancel(100)/2 = 8/2 = 4#
