Find each product or quotient. express using exponents

4. Neutral water has a pH of 7. Each one-unit decrease i the pH means that the solution is 10 times more acidic. How much more acidic vinegar is than baking soda if vinegar has a ph of 3 and baking soda has a ph of 9? I think the answer is 10 to the 6th power but I don't know how to write out my work.

  • Pre-Algebra -

    vinegar - pH 3
    baking soda - pH 9
    9 - 3 = 6 units diff.
    10 x 6 = 60x as acidic

    10^6 = 1 million, so I can't see how that is right

    10^1.77815 = 60
    or, 6 x 10^1 = 60

    is this a pre-algebra question or science?
