your numbers were probably written as
2.5 x 10^7
which means 2.5 x 10000000 , notice 7 zeros from 10^7
= 25 000 000 > 25 million
do the same with the other numbers and you will be able to compare their sizes.
8.57 x 10^4
= 8.57 x 1/10^4
= 8.57 x 1/1000 > count the zeros in the denominator
= .000857 > how many places to the left has the decimal moved?
does that give you any hints for quick solutions to these kind of problems?
