    I'm sorry, but for this basic question.

    I get the answer for 12 / 108 = 9 and then 20 / 500 = 25. When using the traditional pen and paper division.

    How do I get a decimal answer? Like when you calculate my question above on a calculator.

    wait a second

    so you're saying that  \dfrac{20}{500} is >0???

    how can 20 divided into 500 bits be bigger than 1?

    you do 500 bus stop symbol thingy then 20 inside the bustop thingy

    It seems that you are calculating 500/20 instead of 20/500 and 12/108 as 108/12.
