Operations with scientific notation
Perform the indicated operation. Each final answer must be written in scientific notation.
1. (2.34*10^5)*(-4*10^-8)
2. (4*10^3)*(4.5*10^-3)
3. (5*10^5)*(4.3*10^2)

  • math - ,

    multiply the numbers and add the exponents. The answer has to be arranged so the number part is between 1 and 10.

    for example your number 3.

    (5*10^5)*(4.3*10^2)

    = 5 * 4.3 * 10^(5+2)

    = 21.5 * 10^7 but 21.5 = 2.15*10^1
    so
    2.15 * 10^1 * 10^7

    = 2.15 * 10^8

    Thanks.
