4.8 times 10 to the 8th power over 6 times 10 to the 3rd power

`(4.8x10^8)/(6x10^3)`

Once you have this if a power is over another power it becomes subtracted

8-3=5

then you need to find the first part

4.8/6=.8

therefore your answer would be `.8x10^5`

4.8 times 10 to the 8th power over 6 times 10 to the 3rd power

`( 4.8 xx 10^8 ) / ( 6 xx 10^3)`

For the exponents just minus them `10^8 - ^3 = 10^5`

`(4.8 xx 1^5) / 6`

divide 4.8 by 6

4.8 / 6 = .8

the answer is `.8 xx 10^5` move the decimal point in front of the 8 and end up with

`8 xx 10^4`
