Approximately how many times greater is 2.3 x 10^-4 than 1.15 x 10^8

2 Answer

  • It won't be any much greater since 2.3* 10^-4= 0.00023 and 1.15 * 10^8= 115000000 then you would have to subtract which will still give you 115000000...

  • Answer:

    [tex]2\times 10^{-12}[/tex]

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We are given that two numbers are

    [tex]2.3\times 10^{-4}[/tex] and [tex]1.15\times 10^8[/tex]

    We have to find that how many times greater [tex]2.3\times 10^{-4}[/tex]  than [tex]1.15\times 10^8[/tex] approximately.

    In order to find that we divide  [tex]2.3\times 10^{-4}[/tex] by [tex]1.15\times 10^8[/tex]

    [tex]\frac{2.3\times 10^{-4}}{1.15\times 10^8}[/tex]

    [tex]\frac{2.3\times 10^{-4}}{1.15\times 10^8}={230\times 10^{-4-8}[/tex]

    [tex]\frac{2.3\times 10^{-4}}{1.15\times 10^8}=2\times 10^{-12}[/tex]

    [tex]2.3\times 10^{-4}=2\times 10^{-12} [/tex] times  [tex]1.15\times 10^8[/tex]

    Hence,[tex]2.3\times 10^{-4}[/tex] is [tex]2\times 10^{-12}[/tex] times greater than  [tex]1.15\times 10^8[/tex]
