Simplifying the numerator, \(\frac{0.250}{0.333} = \frac{2(0.125)}{2(0.167)} = \frac{0.125}{0.167}\)

Now, when \(\frac{0.125}{0.167}\) is divided by \(\frac{0.250}{0.333}\) which has been simplified to \(\frac{0.125}{0.167}\), we will get \(\frac{0.125}{0.167} * \frac{0.167}{0.125} = 1\)

Therefore, the value is nearly 1(Option C)

answer is C

\(\frac{0.250}{0.333}\) =\(\frac{1}{4}\)/\(\frac{1}{3}\) = \(\frac{3}{4}\)

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

\(\frac{3}{4}\) / \(\frac{3}{4}\) = 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.

(E) 0.500



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

Answer: C
