### Transcript

ah half well we'll use the exponents property x to

the a and then the quantity to be that's the

same as x to the a times b to take

square root a whole what a surprise that just gives

us that the square root of one hundred million is

ten to the eighth to the half See to the

half power and that's the same as ten to the

eighth time's a half there which is the same as

ten to the fourth right eight over twos for it's

ten to the fourth so ten to the fourth is

ten thousand so that's the answer and you note that

the fourth there is the number of zeros they have

So you could have kind of cheated out this one

by simply recognizing that you can take half the number

of zeros to get thes square root problems if they

throw some other weird numbers that have or double like

this easily Well saves me a lot of grief Anyway 00:01:05.102 --> [endTime] the answer is c ten thousand for done
