How to divide these without calculator

You can do long division, Fateem. I can say that for the last example, you could convert 0.5 to a fraction, which is 5/10. However, 5/10 = 1/2. Now, you have 50 divided by 1/2, which is the same as 50 times 2/1 or 50 times 2, which equals 100. When you divide by a fraction, you multiply by the reciprocal of the fraction. The reciprocal of 1/2 is 2/1 = 2.
