hi ..

you are missing out on adding a zero..

\(5002 = 5000+2\) so \(\frac{5002}{4} = \frac{5000+2}{4} = \frac{5000}{4}+\frac{2}{4}=1250+0.5=1250.5\)

It looks like you might be splitting 5002 into 500+2. That would give you an answer of 125.5. Visually, that looks right. But, in math terms, 5002 is actually 5000 + 2. 500+2, on the other hand, is 502.
