  3. Or another way is
    3 x 10^3 + 4.0 x 10^4 =
    3 x 10^3 + 40 x 10^3 =
    43 x 10^3 = 4.3 x 10^4

    Or a third way is
    0.3 x 10^4 + 4.0 x 10^4 =
    4.3 x 10^4

    For purposes of using some method to perform significant figures checks, I think the latter is the best.

    to determine the exponents you put the decimal after 4. Then count how the spaces to the right after the decimal. your last decimal will be after the 0 = 10^4......does that help?
