Accepted Solution

A:

Hey there,

Your question states: The weight of an African elephant is 6 × 10^6 grams; the weight of a tiger is 3 × 10^5 grams. How many times heavier is the elephant than the tiger?

(Tiger)

So we do 3 × 10^5.

10^5 = 100,000

3 × 100,000 = 300,000

(Elephant)

6 × 10^6

10^6 = 1,000,000

6 × 1,000,000 = 6,000,000

_____________________________________________________________

What is greater?

300,000 (or) 1,000,000

1,000,000 is the greatest number.

( it has 7 digits, as for the tiger, weigh's only 6 digit's.

Your correct answer would be D.) 20 grams apart.

Gram's are measured differently, remember!

Hope this helps.
