100 divided by .75 is \(\frac{100}{(\frac{3}{4})\)

Dividing by a fraction is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal.

Reciprocal is \(\frac{4}{3}\), which = 1.33

Answer D

How about I give you kudos because I appreciate your posting the question, and I see you are generous with kudos, which is a gracious gesture that should come back around? :-)

YOU GOT IT!

This question is very easy. But the main thing to take care of is the time we spend on this.
"Dividing by a fraction is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal." is the first thing that should click when you have read this question.

Great work. You get a Kudo for that :D
