Answer 1:

What you do is first, write this as a fraction (43.75 / 100 = 4375 / 10000), then you start simplifying. Since the only prime factors of 10,000 are 2 and 5, try if you can divide the number 4375 by 2, and by 5. If you find a factor, divide the denominator by the same number. Continue, until you can simplify no more.

Answer 2:

4375/10,000 reduces to 875/2,000 which reduces to 175/400 which reduces to 35/80 which reduces to 7/16. In each case the division was by five.
