Danish term or phrase: 74,5 øre pr. kWh
I am a mathematical dunce, so how does one write øre figures as decimals? Some are easy enough e.g. 8 øre Will be DKK 0.08 and 60 øre will be DKK 0.60, but what about 74,5 øre or 40,5 øre?
Pardon my ignorance!

Explanation:
to convert øres to kroner, you multiply by 100, which means simply moving the decimal mark two positions to the left.
