TGIF! From today's math test:

9. The distances involved in measuring our solar system are very, very large. For example, Earth is about 1.50×108 kilometers from the Sun on average, while Pluto, the furthest planet, averages an enormous 5.75×109 kilometers away from the Earth! [3 pts each]

a) Convert both numbers to standard form.

b) What is the distance from the Sun to Pluto? Express your answer in scientific notation.

I can't get Miktex to install on my school computer, or I'd have fancy equation graphics thrown in above.

It's looking to be a nice weekend.
