1000 / 200 is the same a s 100 / 20, which is the same as 10 / 2 ... when two numbers in a division share a number of trailing zeroes these can be cancelled.\n. \n85,000.000,000 = 85 billion\n. \n200,000,000 = 200 million euros.\n. \nAs both numbers have 8 trailing zeroes, we can cancel. This leaves us with 850 and 2. Now the division problem is much easier. 850 /2 = 425.\n. \nSo 85 billion dollars divided by 200 million = 425.\n. \n-- edit --\n. \nIn British English usage a billion has 12 zeros. so the answer would be 425,000
