solve and put answer in scientific notation, rounding to the appropiate number of significant figures:



Expert Answer

Step 1

Given value is ( 9.381×108 ) – ( 6.009×105 )

Step 2

The standard form is a method that is used to express very large numbers or small numbers into simplest form. It is also known as scientific notation.

It can be represented by an expression where Q is a number either decimal or an integer between 1 and 10 and n is a negative or positive integer given as follows;
