Use short division to divide 4 into 3.000 (learn short division if you don't know how). Otherwise use a calculator.

Of course, 3 divided by 4 is just three quarters (3/4), so you can just leave it like that too if you want...

I wont have a calculator in my exam, well not in my non-calculator paper.

Google long division and try this 9/32
