Division in Excel with a decimal

I have a calculation that is taking Cell F2 (197) and dividing into Cell F3 (257,000).

I have it set up as:

  =(F2/F3)*1

My result is coming out as follows:

   0.00077

I want my results to be:

   .77 (without a percentage sign, just the decimal)

I have played around with it, but just can't seem to get it to work.  

How do I accomplish this?

Thanks,

You can try
=(F2/F3)*1000

I tried that (=F2/F3)*1000, but it gives me 77% and I need it to give me .77
