Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, do you want me to guide you through it or do you want to try one more time?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\large (2.5 \times 9)(10^{8} \times 10^{9})\] However, remember that the bases (in scientific notation) needs to be between 1 and 10.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your product is really 22.5 (which is not between 1 and 10) so you need to move the decimal place to the left to make it 2.25 (which is between 1 and 10).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you do that, you need to do an extra step

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you multiply 2.5 and 9, you get 22.5, which is not in scientific notation, so you must change it back

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge 2.25 \times 10^1 \times 10^{18}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge 10^1 \] is needed because you moved the decimal one place to the left. Now the reverse can be applied to when you need to move the decimal place to the left. \[\huge 10^{1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not really what is \[\large 1 + {18} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That will be your exponent, while 2.25 is your base.
