$$\frac{0.250}{0.333}$$ =$$\frac{1}{4}$$/$$\frac{1}{3}$$ = $$\frac{3}{4}$$

$$\frac{0.125}{0.167}$$ =$$\frac{1}{8}$$/$$\frac{1}{6}$$ = $$\frac{3}{4}$$

$$\frac{3}{4}$$ / $$\frac{3}{4}$$ = 1

don't complicate
that's 1/4 * 3/1 = 3/4 divided by 6/8 or 3/4
that is 3/4 * 4/3 = 1
C
pretty straightforward if you know how to convert the decimals into fractions.

If we cancel out the numerator and denominator , we will get 2/2 which is 1

Recall that 0.250 = ¼, 0.125 = ⅛, 0.333 ≈ ⅓ and 0.167 ≈ ⅙, therefore,

(0.250/0.333) / (0.125/0.167) ≈ (¼/⅓)/(⅛/⅙) = (¼ x 3)/(⅛ x 6) = (¾)/(¾) = 1
