Question 21.

Explain why the exponents cannot be added in the product 12^{3} ⋅ 11^{3}.

Type below:

______________

Answer:

The exponent “product rule” tells us that, when multiplying two powers that have the same base, you can add the exponents.

The bases are not the same in the given problem.

=> (12)³ x (11)³

If we solve this equation following the rule of exponent will get the correct answer:

=> (12 x 12 x 12) x (11 x 11 x 11)

=> 1728 X 1331

=> the answer is 2 299 968

But if we add the exponent, the answer would be wrong

Question 28.

Communicate Mathematical Ideas

Why do you subtract exponents when dividing powers with the same base?

Type below:

______________

Answer:

To divide exponents (or powers) with the same base, subtract the exponents. The division is the opposite of multiplication, so it makes sense that because you add exponents when multiplying numbers with the same base, you subtract the exponents when dividing numbers with the same base.

Question 29.

Astronomy

The mass of the Sun is about 2 × 10^{27} metric tons, or 2 × 10^{30} kilograms. How many kilograms are in one metric ton?

________ kgs in one metric ton

Answer:

Answer:

Samuel can type 40 words per minute.

Then how many hours will it take for him to type 2.6 words times 10 to the power of five words

2.6 words time 10 to the power of 5

2.6 × (10)^{4}

2.6 x 100 000 = 260 000 words in all.

Now, we need to find the number of words Samuel can type in an hour

40 words/minutes, in 1 hour there are 60 minutes

40 x 60

2,400 words /hour

Now, let’s divide the total of words he needs to type to the number of words he can type in an hour

260 000 / 2 400

108.33 hours.

Question 29.

Draw Conclusions

Which measurement would be least likely to be written in scientific notation: number of stars in a galaxy, number of grains of sand on a beach, speed of a car, or population of a country? Explain your reasoning.

Type below:

______________

Answer:

speed of a car

Explanation:

As we know scientific notation is used to express measurements that are extremely large or extremely small.

The first two are extremely large, then, they could be expressed in scientific notation.

If we compare the speed of a car and the population of a country, it is clear that the larger will be the population of a country.

Therefore, it is more likely to express that in scientific notation, so the answer is the speed of a car.

Which measurement would be least likely to be written in scientific notation: the thickness of a dog hair, the radius of a period on this page, the ounces in a cup of milk? Explain your reasoning.

Type below:

______________

Answer:

The ounces in a cup of milk would be least likely to be written in scientific notation. The ounces in a cup of milk is correct.

Scientific notation is used for either very large or extremely small numbers.

The thickness of dog hair is very small as the hair is thin. Hence can be converted to scientific notation.

The radius of a period on this page is also pretty small. Hence can be converted to scientific notation.

The ounces in a cup of milk. There are 8 ounces in a cup, so this is least likely to be written in scientific notation.

Question 23.

Multiple Representations

Convert the length 7 centimeters to meters. Compare the numerical values when both numbers are written in scientific notation

Type below:

Answer:

7 centimeters convert to meters

In every 1 meter, there are 100 centimeters = 7/100 = 0.07

Therefore, in 7 centimeters there are 0.07 meters.

7 cm is a whole number while 0.07 m is a decimal number

Scientific Notation of each number

7 cm = 7 x 10°

7 m = 1 x 10¯²

Scientific notation, by the way, is an expression used by the scientist to make a large number of very small number easy to handle.

If you were asked to express the weight in ounces of a ladybug in scientific notation, would the exponent of the 10 be positive or negative? Justify your response.

______________

Answer:

Negative

Explanation:

Scientific notation is used to express very small or very large numbers.

Very small numbers are written in scientific notation using negative exponents.

Very large numbers are written in scientific notation using positive exponents.

Since a ladybug is very small, we would use the very small scientific notation, which uses negative exponents.
