Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0um... how many years in a decade?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and then try to make it into sciencitific notation so it makes #.##*10^#

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, so first I do 24*365=8760 then I 8760*10=87600 Then 87600*140=12,264,000?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you forgot the 60 minutes

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I multiply the 60 minutes too? or just mention it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no you have to multiply it, because then you have to take the result into scientific notation

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so all I have to do is 60*24=1440 1440*365=525,600 525,600*10=5,256,000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I wish I was better at math this is really confusing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes that's right. there are 5,256,000 minutes in a decade. Now multiply by 140 to find the population increase over the decade

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, so 5,256,000*140=735,840,000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the final answer is 735,840,000? Thank you!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It says put the answer in scientific notation. Do you know how to do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so basicially... 321000000 turns into 3.21*10^8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in 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 moveddw:1440736531983:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It moved 8 spaces left, so the exponent is 8dw:1440736701759:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, so 7,358,400,000?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no. 7,358,400,000 is decimal notation. They want the scientific notation above

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(7.3584 \times 10^8\) is scientific notation 7,358,400,000 is decimal notation two different ways of writing the exact same number
