I'm having a lot of difficulty with this question:
An ant has a mass of around 18x10g and the total population on earth is estimated at 100x10 ants. If a hippo has a mass of 4000kg, how many hippos represent the total mass of ants on earth?
The final answer must be in scientific notation.
Thanks for helping me out!
P.S. wow, it's been A LONG time since i've logged in. I remember, this was my go-to website if i had any difficulties, haha
Erm... Some of the numbers didn't load, could you edit? :D
100*10 is only 1000 ants. There are a lot more ants than that! So you have an error in your question.
If your question was correct.
18*10*100*10 g divided by 4000kg
= 180000g divided by 4000kg
= 180Kg divided by 4000Kg
Note that the ants weigh less than one hippo
