Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationWhat happened? Where are you confused? 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. #28 20110707 02:04:24
Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationYes, I would bet my dough on it. 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 Notationhi zeef has the effect of moving the decimal point 21 places. So start with 6.6 and move the point 21 places. You get 6600 000 000 000 000 000 000. That's the same number in 'ordinary' form. Might be helpful to learn how to show the powers properly so that 1021 looks like Bob edit: You start with square brackets, then the word math, then close off the bracket. Then the expression you want to show. In this case 10^{21} The curly brackets are needed when the 'power' is more than one digit. Then finish with square bracket, /math, close square bracket. Hint. If someone has done this sort of thing in a post, click on it, and you'll see how they made the expression. Only the opening and closing math commands will be missing.

Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationNope! For 7 I got A. 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 NotationB is correct for 8 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 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. #37 20110707 02:20:13
Re: Exponents and Scientific Notationhi zeef Write a four in the hundreds column, fill in with zeros afterwards and you get 400 Write a 1 in the thousands column, fill in with zeros and you've got 1000 So the question is asking Opps. That's less than one so my diagram is incomplete. I'll repost with the other half as well.

Re: Exponents and Scientific Notationno. Don't rush. Let's make sure you understand what you are doing then you'll be able to any problem like this for yourself. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #41 20110707 02:33:37
Re: Exponents and Scientific Notationhi zeef The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #43 20110707 02:34:37

Re: Exponents and Scientific Notationhi zeef So using the diagrams you can get straight to the right answer. Bob Last edited by bob bundy (20110707 02:43:32) You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #48 20110707 02:44:03

Re: Exponents and Scientific NotationOh hang on. I was just checking that. I think d is correct. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #50 20110707 02:47:40
