Question:

3.2x10^5/4x10^8


Answer:

(3.2×10⁵) / (4×10⁸)

= (3.2 / 4) × (10⁵ / 10⁸)

= (3.2 / 4) × 10⁽⁵⁻⁸⁾

= (3.2 / 4) × 10⁻³

= 0.8 × 10⁻³

= (0.8 × 10⁻³) × (10/10)

= (0.8 × 10) × (10⁻³ / 10)

= 8 × (10⁻³ / 10)

= 8 × 10⁽⁻³⁻¹⁾

= 8 × 10⁻⁴


The final answer, expressed in SCIENTIFIC NOTATION, is: 8 × 10⁻⁴


The final answer, expressed in STANDARD DECIMAL NOTATION, is: 0.0008
