Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All you do here is move the decimal over the correct amount of places. Take it as if you were multiplying 4.481 by 10 five times.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. i have one more question. it says... Perform the indicated operations. Write the answer without exponents \[25*10^1/5*10^3\] how would this turn out?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a specific order in which you go about to perform operations. A typical was of remembering it the acronym PEMDAS. Which stands for parenthesis, exponents, multiply, divide, add, subtract. You perform operations in this order. So you would look for parenthesis and do the operation in them first, then move on to any exponents and so on.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would come out to this... 25*100/5*100 then the next step would be 2500/500 then after that the final answer would be 5 if i am correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ops i meant 25*100/ 5*1000 and then 2500/5000 and the final answer would be 0.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Close. 10^1 is only 10, not 100.
