(3.2 x 10^5) (2 x 10^-3)

-------------------------

(2 x 10^-3)

I got 1.6 x 10^5 like this,

(3.2 x 10^5) (2 x 10^-3)

------------ x -----------

(2 x 10^-5) (2 x 10^-5)

(3.2 x 10^5) (2 x 10^-3)

------------ x

(2 x 10^-5)

(3.2 x 10^5)

------------ > 3.2 10^5

(2 x 10^10) --- -----

2 10^10

1.6 x 10^5

Is that right?

No it is not right. Your work is just plain wrong. And finally, I am not certain exactly what the original problem is. The first line was

(a * b)/b as I read it...

(3.2 x 10^5) (2 x 10^-3)

-------------------------

(2 x 10^-3)

and the answer to that is a, or

3.2 x10^5

So I really dont understand what you are trying to do.
