    expressing in scientific form but removing the dimensional prefix

    Remove the dimensional prefix and express in scientific notation (include unit), for example, 2.98 x106 J

    1) 5.36 x 106 kV =5.36 x 10^-9 v
    2) 1500 mA = 1.5 x 10 ^3A

    Please work on your formatting. It's not hard to rewrite 106 as 10^6.

    In the first one you switched the sign of the exponent.

    In the second one it's just 1.5 A.
