# 12 / 108 = ? And then 20 / 500 = ? in decimal form answer? watch

1. 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.

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