Question and answer
Why is scientific notation so important in our modern day society? What would be the value of expressing something like the national debt in scientific notation?
You would probably lose a couple decimals because a long train of decimals makes numbers more difficult to read. If you don't cut those off, there's no difference at all. It would be easier to express it in billions though. [ [ If you do end up rounding down and losing some decimals, I'm sure the government would thank you. Read more: ] ]

Do you always use the property of distribution when multiplying monomials and polynomials?
Weegy: yes. that's true. User: In what situations would distribution become important? Weegy: In the past, profits of firms under socialism have been appropriated by the state, who decides how to use it. [ [ Some of the profit is used for investment in the firm, some is used to pay for material, some is used to pay workers, some is invested by the state outside of the firm in, for example, social programs or the military. ] ] (More)

Exponents do NOT distribute over addition! I should never try to say that (b + d)2 is the same as b2 + d2! They are NOT the same thing! I must evaluate the expression as it stands: ( (3) + (4) )2 = ( 7 )2 = 49 Evaluate b2 + d2 for a = –2, b = 3, c = –4, and d = 4. (3)2 + (4)2 = 9 + 16 = 25----No it can't be rearranged because it will ruin the process. ] (More)
