this is confusing me,
my teacher wrote an answer as
4.5 x 10^17
my calculator shows it as 4.5^17
how is that the same thing?
question is find energy "e"
info is given and you get
e=5(3 x 10^8)^2
could someone please explain the difference of
4.5 x 10^17
and
4.5^17
and why when I type 10^17 into my calculator and press = does it show 1^17 ?
Thanks.
