How to divide 2 into 168 without using a calculator

this is the same as 2/168

divide both sides by 2

2/168=1/84

this can be simplified further into decimal form as:

put two zeros to the numerator which becomes 100 represented by 0.0

100/84=1 reminder 16

put this 1 after 0.0 to be 0.01

then 16/84

add a zero in the nemerator it becomes 160/84, this goes for 1 and remoder.

Put this 1 after 0.01 to be 0.011

and the process continues

so 2/168=0.011 to 3 decimal places
