    dividing 24 by 0.94
    is exactly the same as
    dividing 2400 by 94,
    which is pretty simple using long division.

    this is the thumb rule, simply multiply both numbers
    in a way that you'll have two integers.
    the division of those integers equal to the original division

    use long division

    divide 24.00 by .94 in order to get the decimal point correct
    your answer should be 25.53 (rounded off)
