(3.5/ 5) x 10 ^(-6 - -2) = .7  x 10^-4  = 7 x 10^-5

ok first set it up as a fraction. so it would like this (3.5*10-6)

(5.0*10-2)         Divide 3.5/5= .7 then add the exponents which would -8

so your answer would be (.7*10-6) but its not in scientific notation so it would actually be (7*10-5) I got that answer by moving the decimal to the right once and decreasing the exponet by one.

Soooo I need an answer, but Im fairly positive that ILP is incorrect as you do not add on division.
