Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but wouldn't the 9 also be raised to the negative four power?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, it's basically stating that the exponents would be multiplied together

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 9 is raised to the 4 as well

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes that's what i was thinking

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ 1 }{ 9^4 \times 10^{24} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1would that be correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The 9 is also raised because it is in the exponent making it (9^4) (10^24)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don' think you are supposed to put it under 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sense it's under Scientific notation, the only number to be raised to the power of something is usually the ten

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[9^{4}\times10^{24}=\frac{ 1 }{ 9^4\times10^{24} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what format are you trying to write this in?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1scientific notation

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok then you wouldn't want to write them as fractions. keep it as \(9^{4}\times10^{24}\) and evaluate 9^4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay so that would be like 6561

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/6561 since the 4 is negative \[9^{4}=\frac{1}{6561}=1.52\times10^{4}\] so altogether you have \[1.52\times10^{4}\times10^{24}=1.52 \times 10^{28}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we have to add 10^{4} and 10^{24} together? and why?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because when you multiply terms with the same base you add the exponents \[x^a \times x^b=x^{a+b}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well i was trying to say that usually we would move the decimal over to a number that's larger than 10 and then multiply it by 10^{___} and the blank is like the # of times the decimal was moved over. then we multiply it with the original exponent that was given in the problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so i was kind of confused

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah that's the same thing, except you add it to the original exponent, not multiply

calculusxy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay so if we have now: \[\frac{ 4 \times 10^{2} }{ 3.01 \times 10^{2} }\]

calculusxy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we would just divide them and then use the same thing that we did for this problem?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, and since this is division, subtract the exponents

calculusxy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay. can u hold on for like a minute while i try to solve the problem?

calculusxy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1would it be: 1.33 x 10^0
