£8.75 because if we divide a number by 10 / 100 / 1000, etc. we move the numbers right and the number of times we move them is the same as the number of zeros in the division (÷ 10 = 1 move;

÷ 100 = 2 moves; ÷ 1000 = 3 moves, etc.). Remember that divide means we Reduce a number so we move the numbers Right.
