Perform the indicated operations and write each result in engineering notation rounded to three significant digits: ( 5.15 × 10 9 ) ( 65.3 × 10 − 6 ) ( 27 × 10 6 ) ( 800 × 10 12 )

To determine

To Calculate: The simplified form of the expression (5.15×109)(65.3×106)(27×106)(800×1012) in engineering notation rounded to three significant digits.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided expression is (5.15×109)(65.3×106)(27×106)(800×1012).

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,

(5.15×109)(65.3×106)(27×106)(800×1012)

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.

So,

(5.15×109)(65.3×106)(27×106)(800×1012)=(5
