How do you write the answer in scientific notation given #((3.3times10^9)(2.8times10^-7))/(4.62times10^5)#?
We do this in 3 parts:
The powers of 10
The final adjustment so that there is only 1 digit to the left of the decimal point and that that digit is greater than 0
Note that step 3 not needed as there is only 1 digit non zero to right of decimal point.
We can deal first with the powers of ten using the rule of exponents to get:
next we deal with the numbers:
so that we get:
