a cubic millimeter of the blood contains 22 to the 3rd power of white blood cells and 22 to the 5th power of red blood cells What is the ratio of whiteblood cells to red blood cells?

22E5/22E3 =1E2=100:1

The way you have stated the question, the answer would be 22^2 = 1/484.
Did you really mean 22*10^3 and 22*10^5?
I suspect you should be using scientific notation, but copied the numbers wrong.
