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

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
