Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol well let me assume they don't want you to round it off... then waht you gotta do is say : 3/7 is the same as (3000000000/7) /1000000000 and you can solve for 3000000000/7 using long division (it looks crazy but its actually simple. When you have an answer move the decimal 9 places to the left (i.e dividing by 1000000000)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats right for one decimal place the answer is 0.4 but you can carry on bringin down 0's and solving for more decimal places.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it depends on what they want you could say 0.4 or 0.43 or 0.429 or 0.4286 all these answers are correct but they are all to a different number of decimal places do you understand what i mean
