Scientific notation is a common way of writing very large numbers. In everyday life we see this when dealing with cell phone storage. If a phone has 10 gigabytes of hard drive space that means that it has 10×109 bytes of space. A megabyte is 1×106 bytes.If our phone with 10 gigabytes of free storage downloads a game that takes of 76 megabytes, how much free storage is left?

Question

Scientific notation is a common way of writing very large numbers. In everyday life we see this when dealing with cell phone storage. If a phone has 10 gigabytes of hard drive space that means that it has 10×109 bytes of space. A megabyte is 1×106 bytes.

  1. If our phone with 10 gigabytes of free storage downloads a game that takes of 76 megabytes, how much free storage is left?
check_circleAnswer
Step 1

Storage space of the phone = 10 gigabytes = 104 megabytes.

Size of the game = 76 megabytes.

Step 2

Free storage of the phone after the game is downloaded = Storage space – Size of the game

                                                                                                = 104 megabytes - 76 megabytes

                                                                                               = 10000 megabytes - 76 megabyte
