B. 0.0000697
Explanation

### Which of the following shows the product represented in scientific notation? (5.6 x 104)(4.3 x 107)

• A.

24.08 x 1011

• B.

2.408 x 1010

• C.

2.408 x 1012

• D.

2.408 x 1011

C. 2.408 x 1012
Explanation
The product of (5.6 x 10^4) and (4.3 x 10^7) is equal to 24.08 x 10^11. However, none of the answer choices match this value. Therefore, the correct answer is not available.

### Which of the following represents the quotient in scientific notation? 2 x 107 8 x 104

• A.

.25 x 103

• B.

.25 x 10-3

• C.

2.5 x 102

• D.

2.5 x 104

C. 2.5 x 102
Explanation
The given answer, 2.5 x 102, represents the quotient in scientific notation. In scientific notation, a number is written as a product of a decimal number between 1 and 10 and a power of 10. In this case, 2.5 is the decimal number between 1 and 10, and 102 is the power of 10. Therefore, 2.5 x 102 is the correct representation of the quotient in scientific notation.

### Which of the following represents the product in scientific notation?(3.1 x 10-7)(5.8 x 10-6)

• A.

17.98 x 1013

• B.

17.98 x 10-13

• C.

1.798 x 10-12

• D.

1.798 x 10-14

C. 1.798 x 10-12
Explanation
When multiplying numbers in scientific notation, you multiply the coefficients and add the exponents. In this case, (3.1 x 10-7)(5.8 x 10-6) equals 17.98 x 10-13. However, in scientific notation, the coefficient should be between 1 and 10. Therefore, 17.98 x 10-13 can be written as 1.798 x 10-12, which is the correct answer.
