1 meter = 100 cm

1.1 / 100 = 0.011 m

But the answer says, its supposed to be : 1.1 * 10^-2m

pico means 10^{-12} meter

76.2m * (10^12 picometers/meter)

1.1cm*1m/100cm=.011 meter, and in scientific notation,1.1*10^-2 m or in exponential notation, 1.1E-2 meters.

This is really confusing. For number 2, it says that the answer is supposed to be : 76.2 * 10^-11

oops, I erred , I read it as 76m to pm

76.2pm*(10^-12 m/pm)=76.2E-12 m and in scientific notation, 7.62*10^-11 m.
