1 x 10^-6

2 x 10 to power 6 cycles in 1 sec. Period is (1) / (2 x 10 to power 6) = (0.5) x (10 to the power -6) = 0.5 microseconds

2 x 10^1 x 1 x 10^5 = 2 x 10^6

(1.75 x 10^5) ÷ (1 3/4 x 10^6) = (1.75 x 10^5) ÷ ((1 + 3 ÷ 4) x 10^6) = (1.75 x 10^5) ÷ (1.75 x 10^6) = (1.75 ÷ 1.75) x 10^(5-6) = 1 x 10^-1 = 10^-1 = 1/(10^1) = 1/10 = 0.1

6 x 10^(-3)The definition of any number, n, to the power of -a is defined as:n^(-a) = 1/(n^a)Therefore:6 x 10^(-3) = 6 x (1/(10^3)) = 6/(10^3) = 6/1000If you wanted this in simplified form, this would be 3/500.

2 x 10 to power 6 cycles in 1 sec. Period is (1) / (2 x 10 to power 6) = (0.5) x (10 to the power -6) = 0.5 microseconds

10 power 6 = 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 = 1000000 = 1 million

2 x 10^1 x 1 x 10^5 = 2 x 10^6

0.05 = 1/20 (1/20)^6 = 1/64000000 = 1.5625 x 10^-8

first you forget the 2 is there. then you go : 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10 = b now make b a 2. 2 x 10 -6 is 0.000002.

(1.75 x 10^5) ÷ (1 3/4 x 10^6) = (1.75 x 10^5) ÷ ((1 + 3 ÷ 4) x 10^6) = (1.75 x 10^5) ÷ (1.75 x 10^6) = (1.75 ÷ 1.75) x 10^(5-6) = 1 x 10^-1 = 10^-1 = 1/(10^1) = 1/10 = 0.1

Using the symbol "^" for power: a^(-b) = 1 / (a^b) and: a^b = 1 / (a^(-b)) In words: raising a number to a negative power is the reciprocal of the same number, raised to the corresponding positive power (the additive inverse).

By definition of powers, x to the power y = x*x*x*........y times x to the power 1 = x Therefore, 10 to the power 1 = 10.

6 x 10^(-3)The definition of any number, n, to the power of -a is defined as:n^(-a) = 1/(n^a)Therefore:6 x 10^(-3) = 6 x (1/(10^3)) = 6/(10^3) = 6/1000If you wanted this in simplified form, this would be 3/500.

1 x 10 to the power of 2 is 1 x 102 or 10 x 10 or 100

106 = 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 = 1,000,000 and it is not the same 10 x 6 (which would be 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10).
