(C) 7
(D) 6
(E) 5



Equation will boil down to (3*10^j+2)/(10^r+4).
Finally we have 10^j+2-r-4=6
j-r=8

Answer is B

\(\frac{(0.0024*10^j)}{(0.08*10^r)}= 3*10^6\)

= \(\frac{(24*10^j)}{(8*10^{r + 2})}= 3*10^6\)

= \([fraction](3*10^{j-r-2})[/fraction]= 3*10^6\)

Hence, j-r-2 = 6
j-r = 8(Option B)

Let’s express 0.0024 and 0.08 as whole numbers:

0.0024 x 10^j = 24 x 10^-4 x 10^j = 24 x 10^(j-4)

0.08 x 10^r = 8 x 10^-2 x 10^r = 8 x 10^(r-2)

So, we have:

[24 x 10^(j-4)]/[8 x 10^(r-2)] = 3 x 10^6

24 x 10^(j-4) = (3 x 10^6)(8 x 10^(r-2))

24 x 10^(j-4) = 24 x 10^(6 + r - 2)

10^(j-4) = 10^(6 + r - 2)

Because the bases are equal, we can equate just the exponents:

j - 4 = 6 + r - 2

j - r = 8

Answer: B
