    460000 * 9.3 * 10^7 = 4.278 * 10^13

    I don't undestand the final answer.

    You got some serious studying to do then

    460000 = 4.6 * 10^5
    multiply that by 9.3 * 10^7

    and you get 42.78 * 10^12
    But that's not scientific notation. We need to make it

    4.278 * 10^13

    You can do the rounding needed.

    Okay I think I have the correct answer. Is it 42,780,000,000,000

  • math 116 -

    That may be the answer, but they specifically asked you to use scientific notation.
