    Solved. Someone taught me a method

    do 3:11
    11 goes into 3 no times.

    Add a 0 to 3

    11 goes into 30 two times. Put a two somewhere.
    2 times 11 is 22.

    30 minus 22 is 8 (add a zero) so 80.

    11 goes into 80 7 times. Answer is 0.27 recurring.

    Never got taught this.
