# Perform the indicated operation for the following. $150.48 ÷ 7.5 To determine To calculate: The value of the division of the expression$150.48÷75.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided expression is $150.48÷75. Formula used: To calculate division of the decimal numbers, follow steps shown below: Steps 1: Convert the divisor into a whole number, if it is not. To do so, move the decimal point to the right in divisor and dividend as well, to make the proportion exactly equal provided in the question, till divisor does not becomes a whole number. And put 0 if the dividend become whole number before the divisor. Step 2: Perform division operation and round off to least cents if the number is monetary amount to get the result. Calculation: Consider the decimal numbers as provided,$150.48 and 7.5.

Now convert the divisor into a whole number, if it is not.

Here divisor 7.5 is not a whole number.

So, move the decimal point to the right in divisor and dividend as well, to make the proportion exactly equal provided in the question, till divisor does not becomes a whole number.

Now, the divisor become 75 and dividend is \$1504.8

Now, perform division operation to get the result:

7520.0641504
