# Math 8R - Operating with Scientific Notation HELP!

posted by .

In constructing the Mall of America in Minnesota, a total of 1.3 x 10 (to the 4th power) tons of steel were used. The Eiffel Tower in Paris, France consist of 7 x 10 (to the 3rd power) tons of steel. About how many times the amount of steel it took to construct the tower did it take to construct the mall> Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

(1.3 x 10 to the 4th power) x (7.10 to the 3rd power)

I already know how this process works but the equation I type is correct.
