As we know, dividing by a number is equivalent to multiplying by the reciprocal of that number. So

(i) 15.5 ÷ 5

$15.5\div5=\frac{155}{10}\div5=\frac{155}{10}\times\frac{1}{5}=\frac{31}{10}=3.1$

(ii) 126.35 ÷ 7

$126.35\div7=\frac{12635}{100}\div7=\frac{12635}{100}\times\frac{1}{7}=\frac{1805}{100}=18.05$
