(3*10 to the second power)(1.5*10 the the negative fifth power)
SCIENTIFIC NOTATION: 4.5*10 to the negative third power
My question is what is the standard form I got 4500 but if I look closely at the problem I don't think that's possible please tell me if 4500 is correct
(Note: Exponentiation can be expressed with a carat before the exponent: 3*10^2)
4.5 * 10^-3 (/negative/ third) is .0045.
You've got the sign wrong is all.
Just follow order of operations (exponent, then multiply that product by the other term) to get the others.
can some body help me an algebar
An easier way that I hadn't remembered is to move the decimal point (in 4.5 in this example) to the left (negative) or right (positive) for the value of the exponent (we moved left 3 here).
