measurements in the metric system, you would need to have (10^4)^2 grams to equal 1 metric ton. simplify this measurement by multiplying the exponents, then simplify by finding the actual numbers of grams needed to equal 1 meyriv ton.

Accepted Solution

Answer: You would need 10^8 or 100,000,000 grams to equal a metric ton.

We are starting with the number (10^4)^2. This means that we have 10^4 times times 10^4.

Or 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 = 10^8

If we multiply it out, we have a 1 with 8 zeros. Or 100 million.
