When dividing by a decimal it’s easier if we move the decimal point first.

The divisor has 4 decimal places, so we would need to move the decimal point 4 places to the right so that it’s a number that has no decimal point: 5568. We then move the decimal point 4 places to the right in the dividend: 5800 adding zeroes on the right to fill the gap. Now we can divide. After 5800 we write a decimal point so that we can add zeroes as necessary after it. In the quotient we prepare by inserting a decimal point so that it’s aligned with the dividend’s decimal point:

                     .

5568 ) 5800.0000...

Now do long division:

                   1.0416...

5568 ) 5800.0000...

           5568

             23200

             22272

                 9280

                 5568

                 37120

                 33408

                   37120

                   33408

As a fraction this is 25/24, which we can get by simplifying 5800/5568 (cancelling down). Divide top and bottom by 232 and we get 25/24.

If you meant “divided into” instead of “divided by” the answer would have been 24/25=0.96.
