Chapter 7 - Exponents and Exponential Functions - 7-2 Scientific Notation - Lesson Check: 10

Answer

No, the student is not correct.

Work Step by Step

Although the student is correct in stating that $3.5>1.4$, the student neglects the fact that $10^{13}>10^{11}$. When comparing numbers in scientific notation, it is important that we compare the power of $10$ first, as this has a bigger pull on how large the number actually is.
