    When i divide 135 into 120 with my calculator.I get the number .8888.
    But if i divide it on paper it comes out to be .8274.Does anyone else have this problem?

    Apparently your math instructors didn't teach you the correct way to do this. I get .88888888888888 forever. It repeats to infinity.
