This is very small problem you have known the powers addition.

That is.

You first multiply the both 6&5 then added the powers.

Therefore.

(6*10^3) (5*10^5) = (6*5) (10^3+5) =30*10^8.

Then you get the answer.

Since the given numbers have a significant figure in each (6, 5), its product has two significant figures after multiplication.

= 6*10^3*5*10^5 = 30*10^8.

= 6*10^3*5*10^5 = 30*10^8.

Given:

(6x10^3).

(5x10^5).

{(10^3)*(10^5)} = 10^3+5 = 10^8 => [(a^n)*(a^m)=a^n+m].

6*5=30.

Therefore Answer is 30*10^8.

So answer is Option B.

(6x10^3).

(5x10^5).

{(10^3)*(10^5)} = 10^3+5 = 10^8 => [(a^n)*(a^m)=a^n+m].

6*5=30.

Therefore Answer is 30*10^8.

So answer is Option B.

(a^m)*(a^n)=a^(m+n)

[p*(a^m)]*[q*(a^n)]=(p*q)*[a^(m+n)]

Therefore (6 x 10^3)*(5 x 10^5)=(6*5)*10^(3+5)

=30*10^8

[p*(a^m)]*[q*(a^n)]=(p*q)*[a^(m+n)]

Therefore (6 x 10^3)*(5 x 10^5)=(6*5)*10^(3+5)

=30*10^8

6*10^3=6000 and 5*10^5=500000

When you multiply the answers you have 3000000000, there4 this can be written as

3*10^9 or 30*10^8

When you multiply the answers you have 3000000000, there4 this can be written as

3*10^9 or 30*10^8

In mathematical problem, the numbers are multiplied & powers are added.

Therefore, 6*5=30 & 10^3+5=8 so, 30*10^8.

Therefore, 6*5=30 & 10^3+5=8 so, 30*10^8.

{a*10^m}*{b*10^n}.

a and b multiply each other.

The power of 10 sum of each other.

{a*b}*10^(m+n).

{6*5}*10^(3+5).

30*10^8.

a and b multiply each other.

The power of 10 sum of each other.

{a*b}*10^(m+n).

{6*5}*10^(3+5).

30*10^8.

(6*5)*(10^(5+3))=30*10^8

In mathematical problem, the numbers are multiplied, power are added and finally multiply both.

Because of both digits (6 and 5) are multiply directly with each other while the powers of multiplier will be additive.

(6 * 10^3)*(5 * 10^5).

Values : 6*5 = 30(multiplication).

Powers : 5 + 3 = 8(adding).

Then the answer is (30 * 10^8).

Values : 6*5 = 30(multiplication).

Powers : 5 + 3 = 8(adding).

Then the answer is (30 * 10^8).
