    The question is identical to the one I just gave on ages



    The distance from my house to Luton is 50 miles
    The distance from my house to Southampton is 200 miles


    How many times further away is Southampton than Luton

    9.3 x 10 (to the power of 7) = 93000000

    93000000 divided by 250000 = 372

    372 in standard form is 3.72 x 10 (to the power of 2)


    The answer should, if I'm correct, be 3.72 x 10 (to the power of 2)
