Question 1.
Expand the following numbers using exponents.
(i) 1025.63
(ii) 1256.249
Solution:
(i) 1025.63
= 1000 + 20 + 5 + $$\frac{6}{10}+\frac{3}{100}$$
= 1 × 103 + 2 × 10 + 5 × 1 + $$\frac{6}{10}+\frac{3}{100}$$
= 1 × 103 + 2 × 10 + 5 × 1 + 6 × 10-1 + 3 × 10-2

(ii) 1256.249
= 1000 + 200 + 50 + 6 + $$\frac{2}{10}+\frac{4}{100}+\frac{9}{1000}$$
= 1 × 103 + 2 × 102 + 5 × 10 + 6 × 1 + 2 × 10-1 + 4 × 10-2 + 9 × 10-3

Question 1.
Simplify and write in exponential form:
(i) (-2)-3 × (-2)-4
(ii) p3 × p-10
(iii) 32 × 3-5 × 36
Solution:
(i) (-2)-3 × (-2)-4
= (-2)3+(-4)
= (-2)-3-4
= (-2)-7
= $$\frac{1}{-2^{7}}$$ (ii) p3 × 10-10
= p3+(-10)
= p3-10
= p-7
= $$\frac{1}{p^{7}}$$

(iii) 32 × 3-5 × 36
= 32-5+6
= 3-3+6
= 33

Question 1.
Write the following numbers in standard form.
(i) 0.000000564
(ii) 0.0000021
(iii) 21600000
(iv) 15240000
Solution:
(i) 0.000000564 = 5.64 × 10-7
(ii) 0.0000021 = 2.1 × 10-6
(iii) 21600000 = 2.16 × 107
(iv) 15240000 = 1.524 × 107 Question 2.
