    Alright, so this is sort of like the one we solved earlier. The tricky think in here is that 10^-7. When you see a negative exponent, that means you're going to be diving instead of multiplying. (You'll also want to do it 2 extra times). So that's 10 divided by itself 9 times! 10/10/10/10/10/10/10/10/10

    You should also be able to figure out 10^4 since we did that one in another problem. :)

    Also, I'll comment on the fact that if we wrote it out like an equation it would look like this. (2.632 * 10^4 )(2*10^-7). You'll always want to do the exponents first, then multiply them by the number with them inside the parentheses. Then multiply the two parentheses.
