1. 1.6 * 10 ^ 21
= 16 * 10^20
= 2^4 * (10^5)^4
= (2*10^5)^4

2. Did not understand the question

VT,

When I wrote (1), I meant the first part of the problem. If you see the expression, you will see that my choice was #2 (1.6 * 10 ^ 21).

It is asking for the expression which can be formatted in the form of n^4, where n is a integer. You will see why expression#2 (1.6 * 10 ^ 21) can be formatted into that form.

I can't take the test for you. Think about it prakunda, get back to me on my circumference problem the overlapping arc.

( x ) ^ 4
It cannot be one.

VT,

Soory I confused you. The correct choice for the first part of the problem is the number (2) choice which is : 1.6 * 10 ^ 21

Because,

1.6 * 10^21
= 16 * 10^20
= 2^4 * (10^5) ^4
= (2*10^5)^4
= (200000)^4

Which is in the format n^4 where n is an integer. Here your n will be 200000. Mark option B - it is correct.

E is right for one, A for two.

VT,
If (e) is the right answer then 1.6 * 10 ^24 can be expressed as n^4. Which is wrong even if ETS says it. Because, if you take
1.6 * 10 ^24
= 16 * 10^23
= 2^4 * 10 ^ 20 * 10^3
= 2^4 * (10^5)^4 * 1000
= (2*10^5)^4 * 1000

which clearly is not in the form n^4. If (E) is the answer, please recheck the question. Thanks

Stolyar,

In the second question, both ST as well as ST^2 are positive. Why did you choose ST ?

s(t^3)(u^4)>0

(t^2)(u^4) is nonnegative. Terminate it.

st>0
