\((1 * 10^{-2}) * (23 * 10^{-3}) =\)

\(23 * 10^{-5}\)

\(.00023\)

OR

\((\frac{1}{10^2} * \frac{23}{10^3}) =\)\(\frac{23}{10^5} =\)

\(23 * 10^{-5}\)

\(.00023\)

Remember that the shortcut to divide by ten is just shift a decimal one place to the left. 1% = dividing by 100, so shift the decimal to the left two places and insert the requisite zeros after the decimal point. The correct answer is choice A - 0.00023.

A, 0.00023.
[.023][/100] is the equivalent to multiplying by [1][/100]. 100=10^2, so move decimal point two places to the left.
