Do the following calculations using scientific notation: 0.0005 x 0.002
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
I'm sorry but that made no sense what soever -__- ):
* means multiplication
Yes I know that I'm not stupid...
^ means raised to the power
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
1. Yes, 0.0005 x 0.002 = 0.000001 which can be written as 1.0 x 10^-6 (10 to the power negative 6) it can also be do it..... @bthemesandtricks @KellyMichelle ok
