Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1all you need to is work out 205 and that's the new exponent of 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right good but that is not scientific notation because the first number is not between 1 and 10 so to get it to the required value we multiply 0.75 by 10 to give 7.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but 7.5 * 10^15 is not the correct answer  Its 10 times too much agreed?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think it is 7.5 X 10^15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no it cant be because 0.75 x 10^15 is not equal to 7.5 * 10^15 that is like saying 58 = 580

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So to maintain the same value as we multiplied the first part by 10 we have to divide the second part by 10 10^15 / 10^1 = 10^14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the correct answer is 7.5 * 10^14
