how do I leave it in form ab?
anonymous
  • anonymous
3.2 * 3.4 is ab

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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you for your help
anonymous
  • anonymous
um... how many years in a decade?
anonymous
  • anonymous
10
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
so... \[3.4\times10\times365\times60~~~ is~the~answer~i~think~\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you! This is helping me a bunch
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can you show me how you got the numbers? I need to show all of my work
anonymous
  • anonymous
and then try to make it into sciencitific notation so it makes #.##*10^#
anonymous

@Leong

  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
oops sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
and i forgot the 24
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, so first I do 24*365=8760 then I 8760*10=87600 Then 87600*140=12,264,000?
anonymous
  • anonymous
you forgot the 60 minutes
anonymous
  • anonymous
so I multiply the 60 minutes too? or just mention it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no you have to multiply it, because then you have to take the result into scientific notation
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay, so all I have to do is 60*24=1440 1440*365=525,600 525,600*10=5,256,000
anonymous
  • anonymous
um no not like that....
anonymous
  • anonymous
I wish I was better at math this is really confusing
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, so 5,256,000*140=735,840,000
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the final answer is 735,840,000? Thank you!
anonymous
  • anonymous
It says put the answer in scientific notation. Do you know how to do that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, not really :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
so basicially... 321000000 turns into 3.21*10^8
anonymous
  • anonymous
Im still confused
anonymous
  • anonymous
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|
anonymous
  • anonymous
It moved 8 spaces left, so the exponent is 8|dw:1440736701759:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, so 7,358,400,000?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no. 7,358,400,000 is decimal notation. They want the scientific notation above
anonymous
  • anonymous
Im confused, I dont really have a math brain
anonymous
  • anonymous
watch this for more information on scientific notation https://www.khanacademy.org/math/pre-algebra/exponents-radicals/scientific-notation/v/scientific-notation
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, will do
anonymous
  • anonymous
\(7.3584 \times 10^8\) is scientific notation 7,358,400,000 is decimal notation two different ways of writing the exact same number
anonymous
  • anonymous
help me plzz
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh okay, its just shorter
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you, sorry I took up so much of your time
anonymous
  • anonymous
no problem
