Are 0.0005 and 0.0048 within a power of ten of each other? What does "within a power of ten of EACH OTHER" mean? I don't quite understand the wording. Thanks a lot for your help!

Divide the larger number by the smaller:
$\displaystyle \frac{0.0048}{0.0005} = 9.6$
Since this number is less than 10, the answer is "yes."
