6th Grade Math

Need help to explain to my daughter:
A horsepower is the power needed to lift 33,000 pounds 1 foot in 1 minute. It is equivalent to 746 watts. Express 525 watts as a portion of a horsepower both as a fraction and a decimal rounded to the nearest thousandth.

Thanks for anyone's help!!!

  1. power= 525/746 hp

    then for decimal, divide 525 by 746.
