@Diana97 did you try to solve this?

2. Diana97

yea

3. ash2326

what did you get?

4. Diana97

i got 3.42000=3.42x10^6

5. ash2326

we have $\large 0.00342 \times 10^{-5}$ notice that we already have a '-' sign with the 10 power now I'll take the decimal point to one step right doing so will decrease my power by 1 $\large 0.00342 \times 10^{-5}=00.0342\times 10^{-5-1}$ do you get this?

6. Diana97

yea almost

7. Diana97

exponent will be 4

8. ash2326

it'll be -6 $\large -5-1=-6$

9. Diana97

oh ok

10. ash2326

it's not complete yet, shift once more the decimal point to the right what do you get?
