ALGEBRA 1 LESSON 8-2

(For help, go to Lesson 8-1.)

Simplify each expression.

1.6 • 1042.7 • 10–23.8.2 • 105

4.3 • 10–35.3.4 • 1016.5.24 • 102

7.Simplify 3 102 + 6 101 + 7 100 + 8 10–1.

ALGEBRA 1 LESSON 8-2

Solutions

1. 6 • 104 = 6 • 10,000 = 60,000

2. 7 • 10–2 = 7 • 0.01 = 0.07

3. 8.2 • 105 = 8.2 • 100,000 = 820,000

4. 3 • 10–3 = 3 • 0.001 = 0.003

5. 3.4 • 101 = 3.4 • 10 = 34

6. 5.24 • 102 = 5.24 • 100 = 524

7. 3 102 + 6 101 + 7 100 + 8 10–1

= (3 102) + (6 101) + (7 100) + (8 10–1)

= (3 100) + (6 10) + (7 1) + (8 0.1)

= 300 + 60 + 7 + 0.8

= 367.8
