Yes I tried to solve it once again and now I have the same answer as the first one, The root was my main problem, but now I have known how to go about that.

Thank you very much Bobbym.

God bless you!

That book has a sense of humor at least. I am getting the same answer as 1).

I owe you some thanks. :-)

No thanks required.

Yes, Bobbym.

I just want to become used to them, cos in no time I will be teaching others.

Now, I had the same answer for the second question.

I owe you some thanks. :-)

Very good. It is awful making a human being do such calculations. We have machinery for that nowadays.

Is this 2)?

0.36 *  10-12
= 0.6 * 10^-6
= 6.0 * 10^-7

It looks I was confused by the root.

Leave out the 10^0, it is 1. We do not show multiplication by 1.

Now combine the two answers.

EbenezerSon

= 0.36 *10^0

Very good.

Now what is .81 / 2.25?

EbenezerSon
2013-08-12 20:52:51

= 10^(-5-7)=10^-12.

Do it by pieces, what is

EbenezerSon

Please can you provide the steps?

Thanks.

You were close I am getting 6 x 10^-7
