Do you solve the actual notation before you compute, or is there a way to compute it without having to do all of that?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

the actual notation

OpenStudy (anonymous):

$(3.2 \times 10^4) \times (1.4 \times 10^3)$ $=(3.2\times 1.4)\times 10^{4+3}=4.48\times 10^7$

OpenStudy (anonymous):

similarly, $(8.4 \times 10^8) \div (2.2 \times 10^2)=8.4\div 2.2\times 10^{8-2}=3.82\times 10^6$ but $\frac{8.4}{2.2}=\frac{84}{22}=\frac{42}{11}$ and non repeating non terminating decimal
