Math is a language. Say it, interpret it the way you want.
But if you want to go with the general population who speaks Math, you could have said it like this:
A = 1.2 x 10^27 ----------(1)
B = 6 x 10^24 --------------(2)
Divide (1) by (2),
A/B = (1.2 x 10^27) /(6 x 10^24)
A/B = (1.2 /6) x (10^27 / 10^24)
A = (0.2 x 10^3)B
A= 200B
therefore A is 200 times greater than B
