1)5.2x10^6 + 3x10^5

5200000+300000=5500000

5.5x10^6

2)4.2x10^5 + 1.28x10^6

420000+1280000=1700000

1.7x10^6

method please

3)6.5x10^-3 - 3.5x10^-9

0.065-0.000000035=0.064999965

how do you convert this number into standard form?

4)400/(5x10^6)

i dont get how to work this one out

please could you help/explain. thanks.

**bobpursley**, Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 3:09pmYou did 3) wrong. Using your method..

3)6.5x10^-3 - 3.5x10^-9

0.006 5-0.000 000 003 5=0.0059999965

5.9999965 x 10^-3

Let me show you an easier way. Convert both numbers to the same power.

6.5E-3 - 3.5E-9

6.5E-3 - 3.5E-3E-6

(6.5- .000 0035 )E-3

6.499 99965 E-3

another example

5.2x10^6 + 3x10^5

52.0E5+3E5

55E5 or 5.5E6

Lastly

4)400/(5x10^6)

4E2/5E6= .8E(2-6)=.8E-4=8E-5

**bobpursley**, Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 3:36pmE means x 10^ It is often used in computers, calculators, and in ASCII chat as here. It is easier.
