first lets get the number to slighly more friendly expression--
\(\sqrt{(4.8)*10^9}\) = \(\sqrt{48*10^8}\)
48 is nearly equal to 49 which is \(7^2\)..
so ans = \(7*10^4\)
B

We can apply the rule that says: √xy = (√x)(√y)
√{(4.8)(10^9)} = √{(4.8)(10^1)(10^8)}
= √{(48)(10^8)}
= (√48)(√10^8) [applied rule from above]
= (7)(10^4)
= (7)(10,000)
= 70,000

Answer: B

For more on the rule √xy = (√x)(√y), see this free video: https://www.gmatprepnow.com/module/gmat ... video/1037

\(\sqrt{{(4.8)(10^9)}}\)

\(\sqrt{{(48/10)(10^9)}}\)

\(\sqrt{{(48)(10^8)}}\)

\(\sqrt{{(4 * 12)(10^8)}}\)

Apply the square root:

\((2 * 2\sqrt{3})(10^4)\)

Now, \(\sqrt{3}\) = 1.73

Therefore, \(2 * 2 * 1.73 * 10^4\) = 69200 ~ 70,000

First, notice that in order to easily take the square root, we want to re-express 4.8 x 10^9 as 48 x 10^8. Now we have:

√{(4.8)(10^9)} = √{(48)(10^8)} = √48 x √10^8 ≈ √49 x √10^8 = 7 x 10^4 = 70,000

Answer: B

√{(4.8)(10^9)} ~ √{(4.9)(10^9)}
= √{(49)(10^8)}
= (7)(10^4)
= 70,000
