Accepted Solution

A:

Solution:
Change the divisor 0.9 to a whole number by moving the decimal point 1 places to the right. Then move the decimal point in the dividend the same, 1 places to the right.
We then have the equations:
65.8 ÷ 9 = 7.311
and therefore:
6.58 ÷ 0.9 = 7.311
Both calculated to 3 decimal places.
