Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationIncorrect answers: I'll post this and continue with the others. Refresh the page to see more. 14e That is certainly an identified error. I'm guessing that it is not the first. I would have got this wrong too. Is it something to do with how you place the conversion factors top and bottom in order to identify times and divide? I cannot help more unless I see the 'rules' of this way of doing conversions. 17d Same problem here. Your conversion was correct and so you identified an error in the question as required. It's a layout problem again. Sorry. 19f This is a GOOD ANSWER. I've got a 0.5L orange carton in my cupboard! The person who set this needs to go shopping! 20f And again here. I don't see how we are supposed to know what size can the questioner had in mind! Don't feel bad about those 5 questions. In 4 out of 5 your mathematics was good.

Re: Exponents and Scientific Notation
When you raise to a power (3) and then raise that to another power (5) the 'x' is repeated 15 times not 8. Look back to my earlier post on this.

Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationI've edited # 102 to show my view on all of those. Last edited by bob bundy (20110708 04:23:49) You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #107 20110713 04:38:34
Re: Exponents and Scientific Notationyeah my algebra lessons are really hard i give up sometimezzz thanx for clearing these out One, who adopts patience, will never be deprived of success though it may take a long time to reach him. Imam ali (as)<3 #108 20110713 06:09:58
Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationHi zeef; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #109 20110713 07:07:01
Re: Exponents and Scientific Notationyup sure One, who adopts patience, will never be deprived of success though it may take a long time to reach him. Imam ali (as)<3 #110 20110713 07:08:35#111 20110713 07:39:52
Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationLet's start with 14 first, which makes sense. Please recopy your work right here. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationThat is the problem I do not know where the picture is. It is lost in a zillion posts. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationOkay, remember time is money. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationThat was quick, very good. What is wrong with column two? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationThe chart says 1 kilogram = 1000 grams. (kilo means 1000). In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Exponents and Scientific Notationok so what they did incorrect is multiplied or put 1 kg in the second column and there spouse to put 1000 like multiply it by a 1000 right ?

Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationYes, the calculation is In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
