This is 'poor' TeX rendering: $20{\raise0.5ex\hbox{\scriptstyle 1}\kern-0.1em/\kern-0.15em\lower0.25ex\hbox{\scriptstyle 4}} = \frac{{81}}{4}$
Now divide that by 90.

Here is a similar one. Learn from it:

$\frac{79}{3} \div 80 = \frac{79}{3} \div \frac{80}{1} = \frac{79}{3} \times \frac{1}{80} = \frac{79 \times 1}{3 \times 80} = \frac{79}{240}$
