Multiplying decimals by powers of 10

There is an interesting feature of multiplying decimals by powers of 10. Consider the following multiplications.

Multiplication Number of Zeros in the Power of 10 Number of Positions the Decimal Point Has Been Moved to the Right
10 8 . 315274 = 83 . 15274 size 12{"10" cdot 8 "." "315274"="83" "." "15274"} {} 1 1
100 8 . 315274 = 831 . 5274 size 12{"100" cdot 8 "." "315274"="831" "." "5274"} {} 2 2
1, 000 8 . 315274 = 8, 315 . 274 size 12{1,"000" cdot 8 "." "315274"=8,"315" "." "274"} {} 3 3
10 , 000 8 . 315274 = 83 , 152 . 74 size 12{"10","000" cdot 8 "." "315274"="83","152" "." "74"} {} 4 4

Multiplying a decimal by a power of 10

To multiply a decimal by a power of 10, move the decimal place to the right of its current position as many places as there are zeros in the power of 10. Add zeros if necessary.

Sample set c

Find the following products.

100 34 . 876 size 12{"100" cdot "34" "." "876"} {} . Since there are 2 zeros in 100, Move the decimal point in 34.876 two places to the right.

100 times 34.876 equals 3487.6. An arrows shows  how the decimal in 34.876 is moved two digits to the right to make 3,487.6

1, 000 4 . 8058 size 12{1,"000" cdot 4 "." "8058"} {} . Since there are 3 zeros in 1,000, move the decimal point in 4.8058 three places to the right.

1,000 times 4.8058 equals 4805.8. An arrows shows  how the decimal in 4.8058 is moved three digits to the right to make 4,805.8

10 , 000 56 . 82 size 12{"10","000" cdot "56" "." "82"} {} . Since there are 4 zeros in 10,000, move the decimal point in 56.82 four places to the right. We will have to add two zeros in order to obtain the four places.

10,000 times 56.82 equals 568200. An arrows shows  how the decimal in 56.82 is moved four digits to the right to make 568,200.
Since there is no fractional part, we can drop the decimal point.

1,000,000 times 2.57 equals 2570000. An arrows shows  how the decimal in 2.57 is moved six digits to the right to make 2,570,000.

1,000 times 0.0000029 equals 0.0029. An arrows shows  how the decimal in 0.0000029 is moved six digits to the right to make 0.0029.

Practice set c

Find the following products.

100 4 . 27 size 12{"100 " cdot " 4" "." "27"} {}

427

10,000 16 . 52187 size 12{"10,000 " cdot " 16" "." "52187"} {}

165,218.7

( 10 ) ( 0 . 0188 ) size 12{ \( "10" \) \( 0 "." "0188" \) } {}

0.188

( 10,000,000,000 ) ( 52 . 7 ) size 12{ \( "10,000,000,000" \) \( "52" "." 7 \) } {}

527,000,000,000

Multiplication in terms of “of”

Recalling that the word "of" translates to the arithmetic operation of multiplica­tion, let's observe the following multiplications.

Sample set d

Find 4.1 of 3.8.

Translating "of" to "×", we get

4.1 × 3.8 ̲ 328 123    ̲ 15.58

Thus, 4.1 of 3.8 is 15.58.

Find 0.95 of the sum of 2.6 and 0.8.

We first find the sum of 2.6 and 0.8.

2.6 + 0.8 ̲ 3.4

Now find 0.95 of 3.4

3.4 × 0.95 ̲ 170 306    ̲ 3.230

Thus, 0.95 of ( 2 . 6 + 0 . 8 ) size 12{ \( 2 "." "6 "+" 0" "." 8 \) } {} is 3.230.

Practice set d

Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
