Look at 154, and go from left to right. Is 1 divisible by 4? No. So, move one digit over. Is the number 15 divisible by 4? Yes; and the answer is THREE, with a remainder of 3. So, strike-through the 15 (from 154), and put the 3 on top of where 5 used to be. Now, instead of 154, you will have 34. So, is the number 34 divisible by 4? Yes; and the answer is EIGHT, with the remainder of 2. Alright; so now strike-through the 34, and put the 2, in the place where the 4 (of 34) used to be. So, now how do we divide 2 by 4? Because this is the last digit on the right, we are allowed to add a 0 to it, provided that we also put a PERIOD in our answer. This means we now have to do that last piece, which is 20 divided by 4, and the answer to that is FIVE, with no remainders. Therefore, the answer is as follows:

THREE EIGHT PERIOD FIVE, which is the same as 38.5 !!!
