(940) x (2 x 10^3) how do you do this answer...

Let’s say, first, you have to answer 10^3 because it has an exponent

(940) x (2 x 1000)

Then answer the second term because it’s easier

(940) x (2000)

= 940 x 2000

= 18,800,000

The answer would be 1,880,000

Step-by-step explanation:

You figure out the answer by using order of operations, otherwise known as pemdas or more specifically,Parenthesis

Exponents

Multiplication

Division

Addition

Subtraction

So do parenthesis first, the one on the left is simplified already but the one on the right needs to be simplified.

Within the parenthesis you must also use pemdas and you see there is an exponent: 10^3 otherwise known as 10 cubed, 10 to the power of 3, or 10 to the 3rd power. This means you must multiply 10 times itself 3 times. 10 x 10 x 10 = 1,000Now within that set of parenthesis you must multiply 2 by 1,000 to get 2,000Now that both parenthesis are simplified you may remove the parenthesis: 940 x 2,000 = 1,880,000 To simplify this multiplication you can set the 0s to the side and multiply 94 by 2 to get 188 then you know you have to add the 4 0s = 1,880,000Hope this helps
