Solve for: (7.2 * 10^{-8})/(3 * 10^{-2)}

Expression: $\frac{ 7.2 \times {10}^{-8} }{ 3 \times {10}^{-2} }$

Separate the fraction into $2$ fractions

$\frac{ 7.2 }{ 3 } \times \frac{ {10}^{-8} }{ {10}^{-2} }$

Divide the numbers

$2.4 \times \frac{ {10}^{-8} }{ {10}^{-2} }$

Divide the terms with the same base by subtracting their exponents

$2.4 \times {10}^{-8-\left( -2 \right)}$

When there is a $-$ in front of an expression in parentheses, change the sign of each term of the expression and remove the parentheses

$2.4 \times {10}^{-8+2}$

Calculate the sum

$2.4 \times {10}^{-6}$
