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

• 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.

• 0.24 / 0.096 = 12 / 4.8 = 2.5

• It's the same as 240 divided by 96, or 240/96, or 60/24, or 5/2, or 2.5.

• If you mean 0.24 divided by 0.096 then it is 2.5

• 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

• 0.24 / 0.096 = 0.2 / 0.08 = 2.5

• 0.24 divide 0.096 = 240 divide 96 =10 divide 4 =2.5

• 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
