# 3 times ten to the negative 2 power?

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 10/11/2007

An exponent tells how many times to multiply a number by it self.

In this table, the symbol ^ indicates the exponent -

(In case the symbol came through garbled, it is the shifted 6)

10 ^5 = 100000

10 ^4 = 10000

10 ^3 = 1000

10 ^2 = 100

10 ^1 - 10

Following that logic -

10 ^0 = 1

10 ^-1 = .1

10 ^-2 = .01

So: 3 x 10 ^-2 = .03

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### What are the factors that will equal negative ten?

factors are the numbers you multiply together to get a product
in a multiplication problem.
a positive times a positive = a positive
a positive times a negative = a negative
a negative times a negative = a positive
since you are looking for negative 10, you need one factor to be
positive and one to be negative.
this could be:
-1*10
-10*1
-2*5
-5*2

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### What does -2 to the 4 power equal?

-24 is the same as saying -2 times itself 4 times, or
(-2)*(-2)*(-2)*(-2). This can be simplified to 4*4, which is equal
to 16.
An exception is if it is -(24). Because the negative sign is
"outside" the influence of the power, you are now finding 2*2*2*2
and making it negative, so the answer would be negative
16.

###### Asked in Algebra

### What is 2 to the 3rd power times 2 to the 2nd power times 2 to the negative 1 power?

2 cubed )2^3) is 8, 2 squared (2^2) is 4, and 2 to the negative
1 power is done by thinking of a fraction. We know that any whole
number can be made into a fraction, like 2 is 2/1. Well when we
have negative exponents, these are solved by putting those numbers
to negative powers into the bottom. So (2^-1)/1 would be changed to
1/(2^1) or 1/2. So if we now multiply these three numbers, we get
16.
