A very simple way to start is to count digits after the decimal point. In .8975 there are four, which means 8975 needs to be divided by 1 with four zeros, i.e. 10,000. Write the number in fraction form:
8975/10000, then simplify to get 359/400

.06 -> two zeros -> 100 -> 6/100=3/50
.34 -> two zeros -> 100 -> 34/100=17/50
.0074 -> four zeros -> 10,000 -> 74/10,000=37/5000
