 7

x = 320 ( 7 )
               5

x = $448 *Ans.

26. 0.0075 x 1000 = ___________?

To multiply numbers by 10n, move the decimal point of the number to n places to the right.

0.0075 x 1000 = 0.0075 x 103               n = 3 this represents the no. of zero decimals : move the
                        = 7.5 *Ans                      decimal point 3 places to the right.

27. Express 0.572 as a common fraction in lowest term?

0.572 =  527              0.572 - this has 3 decimal places remove the decimal point and
             1000                          replace it by the denominator of 103 = 1000.

=  572 / 4 
   1000 / 4

=  143  *Ans.
    250
