Problem 5

Noah reads the problem, “Evaluate each expression, giving the answer in scientific notation.” The first problem part is: \(5.4 \times 10^5 + 2.3 \times 10^4\).

Noah says, “I can rewrite \(5.4 \times 10^5\) as \(54 \times 10^4\). Now I can add the numbers: \(54 \times 10^4 + 2.3 \times 10^4 = 57.3 \times 10^4\).”

Do you agree with Noah’s solution to the problem? Explain your reasoning.

\(3 \boldcdot 3 \boldcdot 3 \boldcdot 3 \boldcdot 3 \boldcdot 3 \boldcdot 3 \boldcdot 3\)

D:

\((3^4)^2\)

E:

\(\frac{3^6}{3^{\text-2}}\)

F:
