Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.010^3=1,0009,999 which is 4 digits 10^4=10,00099,999 which is 5 digits 10^5=100,000999,999 which is 6 digits 10^6=1,000,0009,999,999 which is 7 digits

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(10^4 = 10,000 \approx 58,100\) while, \(10^5\) is the closer one to 58,100. @pmnodine \(\color{blue}{\huge\tt{Nice~}}\) \(\huge\mathcal{to~meet~}\) \(\color{red}{\huge\tt{You~!}}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No its not. @Koikkara It is asking for orders of magnitude not "which number here is closest to 58,100?"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm... I \(don't~ know\) how to explain... \(10^4=10,000\) \(10^5=1,00,000\) but \(58,100\) comes in the order of digits of this similiar fashion \(10,000\) not \(1,00,000\) @Shalante

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[10^{4}=10,000\] \[10^{5}=100,000\] You just said it comes in similar fashion to 10,000 which is to the 4th power. Thats what I said earlier, but you mentioned 10^5
