Chapter 5 - Section 5.1 - Exponents and Scientific Notation - Exercise Set: 117

Answer

$.0000000036$

Work Step by Step

We are given the number $3.6\times10^{-9}$. Since the exponent is negative, move the decimal 9 places to the left. Note that 9 places to the left will be 8 decimal places past the first digit (3), so we will add 8 zeroes before 3. $3.6\times10^{-9}=.0000000036$
