Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your joking right? There's nothing else to it? It seems way too simple. If numbers differ by 1 order of magnitude, x is about ten times different in quantity than y. If values differ by 2 orders of magnitude, they differ by a factor of about 100. Two numbers of the same order of magnitude have roughly the same scale: the larger value is less than ten times the smaller value.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0see example here we have two values 10^2 and 10^4 so we can say that the second value is greater than the first value by oder of two
