 Question 209387: Multiply: leave answer in scientific notation (4.0 * 10^-3)(3.0 * 10^-8)(2.0 * 10^4)Answer by MathTherapy(1421)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(4.0 * 10^-3)(3.0 * 10^-8)(2.0 * 10^4) Let's 1st multiply the decimals: 4.0 * 3.0 * 2.0 = 24, or, 2.4 x Now let's multiply the base-10 powers: . Since these expressions have the same base, then using the law of exponents, we just add their exponenets. Therefore, we get: = We now have 2.4 x x Once again, we add the exponents with the same base of 10 to get x
