# How do you evaluate 6e^-4.1?

Oct 21, 2016

$6 {e}^{-} 4.1 = \frac{6}{e} ^ 4.1 \approx 0.0994360524106$

#### Explanation:

This can be rewritten due to the negative exponent:

$6 {e}^{-} 4.1 = \frac{6}{e} ^ 4.1$

However, either of these can be input right into a calculator to show that

$6 {e}^{-} 4.1 = \frac{6}{e} ^ 4.1 \approx 0.0994360524106$

Recall that $e$ is a number like $\pi$, expect $e$ is approximately equal to $2.71828182846$.
