2^2001 * 5^1950

______________  =

     4^27

 

2^2001 * 5^1950

_____________    =

        (2^2)^27

 

2^2001 * 5^1950

_____________    =

       2^54

 

2^1947 * 5^1950 =

 

2^ 1947 * 5^1947 * 5^3  =

 

(2*5)^1947  * 5^3  =

 

10^1947 * 125  =

 

125 x 10^1947 =

 

1.25 x 10^1949

 

So...... 1950 digits
