I havent taken math for years so please help me out. The problem is:
Using scientific notation, evaluate:
(4 x 10^8)^3 divided by (5 x10^-6)^2
Do I just convert this to 40 x 10^11 divided by 50 x 10^-4?
If so..
then I divide 40 by 50, which is .8
So we got .8 x 10^7 as the answer.
Am I doing this right? thanks.
Start with a refresher on exponent rules:
