How do you write the answer in scientific notation given #(9.9times10^9)/(1.5times10^8)#?
Example demonstrating a principle using 'easy' numbers
Suppose we had
This is the same as:
Split this so that we have:
Another way of doing this is:
Using the method as in the example write as:
but 9.9-:1.5=6.6# giving:
We have a whole number to the left of the equals that is less than 10 so this is the finished answer.
