Divide and write the result using scientific notation
the 8 and 4 is to the second power
8x10(8)
4x10(4)
I plugged it in the calculator this way
(8x10^8)/(4x10^4)
it gave me this as the result
2 E 12

2E12 means 2*10^12 , so your calculation is correct

gucwin,
I have been using scientific notation for like 20 years, so I don't remember how I get that, sorry...
