Look at the attached picture. My teacher always taught us to never have decimal inside the box So I move it to the end which makes it a whole number Since I moved the decimal place twice I have to do it to the number outside the box also twice So the outside box number becomes 3 and then it is simply 27 divided by 3

I think this will help explain it Since .27 and .03 aren't whole numbers, you need to move the decimal point 2 spaces to make them whole numbers (Or x100) and then you divide like normal.
