    First you have to find the common devider between 75 and 10,000 which 25 so, \[{75 \over 10000}*{25 \over 25} = {3 \over 400}\]

    Thank you..I got that far but I have to then divide 3 by 400 & the answer I come up with is not the same as the answer in the books answer key. The book says answer should be 0.08 & I come up w/ 0.0075

    0.0075 can be rounded to 0.008 but 0.08 :S

    maybe there was a type and they meant 0.008 instead, cause 0.0075 can be rounded as @uzma said
