@laqwane24 Let us assume that the problem is: 3.267 x 10^(-3)

10 ^ (-3) = 1divided by 10 cubed which is 1/1000 which is .001. So, 3.267 x 10^(-3) means to multiply 3.267 by .001. Do that and you get what? Let's see if it is one of the answers.

@laqwane24 You can let Google do the multiplying. Enter 3.267 x 10^(-3) = in the search field. Then, we'll discuss the answer.

|dw:1359432921281:dw| @laqwane24 Yes, that is correct. Now, multiplying by 10^(-3) moves the decimal point 3 slots to the left.
