Question 994049: What is the value of 0.3x to the 3rd power + 2
Found 2 solutions by Alex2dadeath, Boreal: Answer by Alex2dadeath(5) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! 0.3 to the third power or *cubed*.
SO the power is basically that number times itself that many times. (For instance, if I had 3 to the fourth power, it will be: 3x3x3x3).
So here, we got 0.3 x 0.3 x 0.3. ). 0.3 times 0.3 equals 0.09. Now multiply 0.09 with 0.3. You get 0.027.
Now you have to add 2. 2 is a full number with no decimal so do not add it to the right of the decimal. Add it to the 0 on the left of the decimal. 2 plus 0.027 equals 2.027.
0.027
+2.00

2.027
ANSWER: 2.027
Answer by Boreal(1464) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! (0.3x)^3+2 is how I interpret the question.
0.027x^3+2
you cube 0.3
you cube x
you add them
=======
(0.3x+2)^3 is different. Start by squaring it.
0.09x^2+1.2x+4
Then multiply by 0.3x+2. There will be six terms:
0.27x^3+0.18x^2+0.36x^2+2.4x+1.2x+8
This is
0.27 x^3+0.54x^2+3.6x +8
=======
Notice the different results for the different interpretations of the problem.

Question 993891: what is (h9j4k4)3 equal? (btw the numbers are all exponents i just couldn't type them like that from my laptop)
Answer by Alan3354(47455) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! what is (h9j4k4)3 equal?

It's equal to what it says.
If you want to expand it:
Use ^ (Shift 6) for exponents.

(h^9j  4k^4)^3
For 3rd power, use the values from Pascal's triangle, 1 3 3 1
= (h^9j)^3  3*(h^9j)^2*(4k^4) + 3*(h^9j)*(4k^4)^2  (4k^4)^3

=
You might want to expand each term, I don't know.

Answer by stanbon(69061) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! (3a0 b2)3 the 0 2 and 3 are exponents

= (3b2)^3

= (3b)^3 + 3(3b)^2(2) + 3(3b)(2)^2 + (2)^3

= 27b^3  54b^2 + 36b  8

Question 992495: An adult blue whale can eat 4.0 x 10^7 krill in a day. At that rate, how many krill can an adult blue what eat in 3.65 x 10^2 days? Please explain
Answer by KMST(3791) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! If you have a time to achieve a certain amount (such as a time to go a distance),
and a rate (such as a speed),
to find the amount you achieve (such as how far you can go) you multiply time and rate.
Of course, you have to mind your units, to match the units of time in your time and your rate
For example, to find how far you will go
driving 90minutes (1.5hours)
at 50 miles per hour, you multiply
.
In this case, to find how many krill that whale will eat in one year, you calculate
.
The factor 4.0 x 10^7 krill/day is given with 2 significant digits,
meaning that the rate is between 3.95 x 10^7 krill/day and 4.15 x 10^7 krill/day, and maybe your teacher would like you to show the answer with
less precision that your data,
as krill , meaning somewhere between krill and krill.
NOTE: In science, sometimes we would keep an extra significant figure so as not to loose information, even if we are not completely certain. We do that when we may use that result in further calculations. The drug content calculated for 10 individually analyzed tablets is one example.

Question 992047: Which pair of numbers is closer together? 10^10 and 10^50 , or the pair 10^100 and 10^101?
I know 10^100 and 10^101 are much much further apart due to the exponent operating on a much larger scale, but I don't know how to prove this is mathematical notation. My calculator gives maths error for 10^10110^100, so ideally I would like some algebraic way of proving the solution that doesn't simply rely on typing the numbers in.
Thanks.

10^5010^10 = 10^10[10^401]

10^10110^100 = 10^100[101] = 10^10[10^90]*9

Since 10^90*9 > 10^401, 10^10110^100 is a greater difference.

Question 991639: 8g to the fourth power divided by 6g to the 6th power
Answer by Theo(5548) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! 8g^4 / 6g^6 = (8/6) * (g^4/g^6)
8/6 = 4/3
g^4/g^6 = g^(46) = g^(2) = 1/g^2
you wind up with:
4/3 * 1/g^2 which can then be simplified to:
4 / 3g^2
