How do you solve for missing values and integers in the same equation? 924500000=___ x 10-

 

Trying to help my son and I am stuck. Please help. We don't need the answer, we just need a starting point. Should I divide on both sides by 10? But where do we go from there?

 

Thanks for the help

\( 924500000=\underline{92450000} \times 10\)

 

Yeah divide the left side by 10 which just means knocking off one 0 at the end.

Ohh, ok so I wasn't all the way lost...lol. So dividing the 10 by 10 gets rid of the 'to the power of' line behind the 10 because 10/10 = 1?

What is that little mark to the top right of the zero in the ten?  Did you intend to put a negative exponent there?
