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 $\text{10}\cdot 8\text{.}\text{315274}=\text{83}\text{.}\text{15274}$ 1 1 $\text{100}\cdot 8\text{.}\text{315274}=\text{831}\text{.}\text{5274}$ 2 2 $1,\text{000}\cdot 8\text{.}\text{315274}=8,\text{315}\text{.}\text{274}$ 3 3 $\text{10},\text{000}\cdot 8\text{.}\text{315274}=\text{83},\text{152}\text{.}\text{74}$ 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.

$\text{100}\cdot \text{34}\text{.}\text{876}$ . Since there are 2 zeros in 100, Move the decimal point in 34.876 two places to the right.

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

$\text{10},\text{000}\cdot \text{56}\text{.}\text{82}$ . 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.

Since there is no fractional part, we can drop the decimal point.

Practice set c

Find the following products.

$\text{100}\cdot \text{4}\text{.}\text{27}$

427

$\text{10,000}\cdot \text{16}\text{.}\text{52187}$

165,218.7

$\left(\text{10}\right)\left(0\text{.}\text{0188}\right)$

0.188

$\left(\text{10,000,000,000}\right)\left(\text{52}\text{.}7\right)$

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

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.

$\begin{array}{c}\hfill 2.6\\ \hfill \underline{+0.8}\\ \hfill 3.4\end{array}$

Now find 0.95 of 3.4

Thus, 0.95 of $\left(2\text{.}\text{6}+\text{0}\text{.}8\right)$ is 3.230.

Practice set d

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

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.
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
