Work Step by Step

We find the quotient by dividing: $~~~~~~26.7555$ $9\overline{)240.8000}$ $~~~~\underline{18}$ $~~~~~~60$ $~~~~~~\underline{54}$ $~~~~~~~~~68$ $~~~~~~~~~\underline{63}$ $~~~~~~~~~~~50$ $~~~~~~~~~~~\underline{45}$ $~~~~~~~~~~~~~50$ $~~~~~~~~~~~~~\underline{45}$ $~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~50$ $~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\underline{45}$ $~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~5$ Since the questions asks us to round to the nearest thousandth, we can stop with the remainder of 5. We round the quotient to the nearest thousandth: $25.755\bar5\approx26.756$
