Perform the indicated operations and write each result in engineering notation rounded to three significant digits: ( 6 × 10 − 12 ) ( 20 × 10 − 9 ) ( 400 × 10 − 6 )

To determine

To calculate: The simplified form of the expression (6×1012)(20×109)(400×106) in engineering notation rounded to three significant digits.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided expression is (6×1012)(20×109)(400×106).

Formula used:

Multiplying numbers in engineering notation includes:

1. In order to multiply numbers in engineering notation, the decimal must be multiplied between 1 and 1000.

2. And then the exponents of the powers of 10 must be added.

Calculation:

Consider the provided expression,

(6×1012)(20×109)(400×106)

In case of multiplying numbers in engineering notation, the decimal must be multiplied between 1 and 1000 and then the exponents of the powers of 10 must be added
