0.2(3x10^2)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

all right, multiply through

OpenStudy (anonymous):

multiply .2 with 3?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes, which = ?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

.6

OpenStudy (anonymous):

nice, scientific notation requires a number that is not less than one to be the leading value

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so .6 is equal to what multiplied by a value of 10 raised to an exponent

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so my answer will be 6x10^1?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

not quite, 6 * 10^1 = 60

OpenStudy (anonymous):

oooooooo ic

OpenStudy (anonymous):

wait, sorry man

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yeah, .6 = 6 * 10^-1, then 6 *10^-1 * 10^2 - 6*10^1

OpenStudy (anonymous):

you skipped ahead to the final answer, yes!
