. An estimate for the number of cells in the human body is 8 x 10^13. An estimate for the number of cells in a particular insect is 3 x 10^3. Determine, using scientific notation, how many times more cells are in the human body than in the insect. What is the power of 10 in the answer?
The number of cells in the human body: 8 x 10^13. The number of cells in a particular insect:; 3 x 10^3 8 x 10^13 : 3 x 10^3 = 2.67 x 10^10 Answer: There ere 2.67 x 10^10 ( 2.67 times 10 to the power of 10 ) times more cells in the human body then in the insect.
