Solve this problem, expressing the result with engineering notation. (12 x 10^{-3}) + (2.2 x 10^{-3}) = _____

Solve this problem, expressing the result with engineering notation.

(12 x 10^{-3}) + (2.2 x 10^{-3}) = _____

1. Adjust to produce identical exponents, if necessary (12 x 10^{-3}) + (2.2 x 10^{-3}) Adjustment is not necessary. Exponents are equal.

1. Adjust to produce identical exponents, if necessary

(12 x 10^{-3}) + (2.2 x 10^{-3}) Adjustment is not necessary. Exponents are equal.

(12 x 10^{-3}) + (2.2 x 10^{-3})

Adjustment is not necessary. Exponents are equal.

10^{-3}

2. Add or subtract the coefficients, as designated (12 x 10^{-3}) + (2.2 x 10^{-3})

2. Add or subtract the coefficients, as designated

12 + 2.2 = 14.2

3. Attach the common power of ten (12 x 10^{-3}) + (2.2 x 10^{-3}) = 14.4 x 10^{-3} The solution is already normalized

3. Attach the common power of ten

(12 x 10^{-3}) + (2.2 x 10^{-3}) = 14.4 x 10^{-3}

The solution is already normalized
