What is the order of
1.5 x 10^3, 1.4 x 10^-1, 2 x 10^3, and 1.4 x 1-^-2 from least to greatest?

• math -

Online, "^" is used to designate an exponent, because it avoids the confusion with x being used as an unknown.

I assume the first dash in the last term was supposed to be a zero. In ascending order, they are:

1.4 * 10^-2

1.4 * 10^-1

1.5 * 10^3

2 * 10^3
