Your lack of English keeps you from asking a proper mathematical question.

No answer.

0.24 / 0.096

Shift the decimal points three(3) places to the right

Hence

240 / 96

Cancel down by '8'

30/12

Cancel down by '6'

5/2 = 2 1/2 = 2.5

Done!!!!

NB There is NO need to shift decimal points back three places.

First remove the decimal signs.

0.24/0.096*10/10=2.4/0.96*10/10=24/9.6*10/10=240/96=60/24 (WHEN DIVIDE BY FOUR)=10/4=2.5

0.096/.24=4/10=0.4

It depends if you are asking for 0.24 divided *by* 0.096 or if you meant 0.24 divided *into* 0.096.

I'm going to assume it's the first interpretation:

0.24 / 0.096

The first think I would do is move the decimal point 3 places to the right for both the numerator and denominator:

240 / 96

Now reduce that by dividing top and bottom by 48:

5 / 2

Answer:

5/2 (or 2.5)

Update:

If you meant 0.24 divided *into* 0.096, you'd switch the order and divide 0.096 / 0.24 = 96/240 = 2/5 = 0.4
