Divide:
\((8.8 \times 10^{-8})\) \(\div (2.2 \times 10^{-6}) = \) _________
\(4.0 \times 10^{-2}\)
\(4.0 \times 10^{-14}\)
\(0.4 \times 10^{-4}\)
\(6.6 \times 10^2\)
Detailed Explanation
First divide the nonexponential terms: \(8.8 \div 2.2 = 4.0\)
When dividing, subtract exponents from each other (when multiplying, add the exponents together).
–8 – (–6) = –2
