    The world population is increasing about 140 people per minute! At this rate, how much will the population increase in a decade? Put your answer in Scientific Notation. SHOW ALL OF YOUR WORK, THIS INCLUDES USING NUMBERS AND WORDS! Put your answer in Scientific Notation

    and then try to make it into sciencitific notation so it makes #.##*10^#

    right idea, but you missed a conversion. and I think the 3.4 is for the previous problem. you basically need to find the amount of minutes in a decade and then multiply by 140. 60 minutes in an hour 24 hours in a day 365 day in a year 10 years in a decade

    okay, so first I do 24*365=8760 then I 8760*10=87600 Then 87600*140=12,264,000?

    no you have to multiply it, because then you have to take the result into scientific notation

    Okay, so all I have to do is 60*24=1440 1440*365=525,600 525,600*10=5,256,000

    yes that's right. there are 5,256,000 minutes in a decade. Now multiply by 140 to find the population increase over the decade

    It says put the answer in scientific notation. Do you know how to do that?

    in scientific notation, the decimal needs to be behind the first number that's not 0. If the decimal point moves left, the exponent on 10 is positive. If it moves right the exponent on 10 is negative. The number of the exponent is the number of spaces the decimal moved|dw:1440736531983:dw|

    It moved 8 spaces left, so the exponent is 8|dw:1440736701759:dw|

    no. 7,358,400,000 is decimal notation. They want the scientific notation above

    \(7.3584 \times 10^8\) is scientific notation 7,358,400,000 is decimal notation two different ways of writing the exact same number
