    5.0 * 10^-4 * 2.0 * 10^-3 5.0 * 2.0 * 10^[-4+(-3)] 10 * 10^-3 10^(1-3) 10^(-2) 1/10^2 1/100

    okay, in the solution, you move the place value 0.0005 from 0.0 to 5.0. The amount of times u moved it is 4. There fore it is a negative 4

    You apply the same technique to the other number, that is, 0.002 to get 2.0 * 10 ^ -3
