Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

When you see a question like this next time, be happy

You divide the numerator with the denominator.

The numerator is 5 and the denominator is 8

so divide five by eight

In the first division, five cant be divided by eight..so put a 0. and add 0 to 5 to make it 50

Now 8 can divide 50, can go there 6 times , remain 2

so we have 0.6

add 0 to the remaining 2 to make 20,  8 can go to 20 two times, to make sixteen, the remainder is 4

we now have 0.68

add a zero to the remaining 4 to make 40

 8 can go to 40 five times and there is no remainder

 so our answer is


0.685

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
