When powers of 10 are multiplied together, the powers are added together. For example, 102 × 103 = 102+3 = 105. With this in mind, can you evaluate (4.506 × 104) × (1.003 × 102) without entering scientific notation into your calculator?
When powers of 10 are divided into each other, the bottom exponent is subtracted from the top exponent. For example, 105/103 = 105−3 = 102. With this in mind, can you evaluate (8.552 × 106) ÷ (3.129 × 103) without entering scientific notation into your calculator?
