**Damon**, Thursday, January 17, 2008 at 10:28pmmultiply 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
