Math - multiply decimals by exponents











































How do you multiply decimals by exponents ?

Four different problems:

1. decimals raised to a power, such as 0.56²

2. a decimal multiplied by another decimal which is raised to a power, such as 2.2 × 0.56²

3. a decimal multiplied by an integer raised to a power, such as 4.777 × 10³

This format is used in scientific notation.

Answer

Part I

1. decimals raised to a power, such as 0.56²

0.56² = 0.56 * 0.56

0.56 × 0.56 = 0.3136

Math - 0.56 squared






2. a decimal multiplied by another decimal which is raised to a power, such as 2.2 × 0.56²

2.2 × 0.56² = 2.2 × 0.56 × 0.56

2.2 × 0.56 × 0.56 = 0.68992


 Math - 2.2 multiplied by 0.56 squared

Part II


3. a decimal multiplied by an integer raised to a power, such as 4.777 × 10³

4.777 × 10³ = 4.777 × 1000

4.777 × 1000 = 4777

Math - 4.777 multiplied by 10 cubed





4. multiplying two numbers with decimal exponents, such as 0.5(.3) × 0.5(.7)

0.5(.3) × 0.5(.7) = 0.5(.3 + .7)

0.5(.3 + .7) = 0.5(1)

0.5(1) = 0.5


Math - decimal exponents - 0.5^(.3) * 0.5^(.7)
