**Express the following using the prefixes of Table 1–4: **

** **

**(a) $\mathbf{1}\mathbf{\times}{\mathbf{10}}^{\mathbf{6}}\mathbf{volts}$**** **

**(b) $\mathbf{2}\mathbf{\times}{\mathbf{10}}^{\mathbf{-}\mathbf{6}}\mathbf{meters}$**

**(c) $\mathbf{6}\mathbf{\times}{\mathbf{10}}^{\mathbf{3}}\mathbf{days}$**

**(d) $\mathbf{18}\mathbf{\times}{\mathbf{10}}^{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{bucks}$**** **

**(e) $\mathbf{7}\mathbf{\times}{\mathbf{10}}^{\mathbf{-}\mathbf{7}}\mathbf{seconds}$**

The resultant expressions of the given values using prefixes for parts (a), (b), (c), (d), and (e) are $1\mathrm{megavolt}$, $2\mathrm{micrometers}$, $6\mathrm{kilodays}$, $18\mathrm{hectobucks}$, and $0.7\mathrm{microseconds}$, respectively.

**Prefixes**

**Prefixes are added at the beginning of words to modify their meaning. In the word unhappy, “un” is the prefix, and “re” is the prefix in the word rewrite.**

To express the given value using a prefix, use Table 1–4.

$\begin{array}{c}V=\left(1\times {10}^{6}\mathrm{volts}\times \frac{1\mathrm{megavolt}}{{10}^{6}\mathrm{volts}}\right)\\ =1\mathrm{megavolt}.\end{array}$

To express the given value using a prefix, use Table 1–4.

$\begin{array}{c}d=\left(2\times {10}^{-6}\mathrm{meters}\times \frac{1\mathrm{micrometer}}{{10}^{-6}\mathrm{meters}}\right)\\ =2\mathrm{micrometers}.\end{array}$

To express the given value using a prefix, use Table 1–4.

$\begin{array}{c}t=\left(6\times {10}^{3}\mathrm{days}\times \frac{1\mathrm{kiloday}}{{10}^{3}\mathrm{days}}\right)\\ =6\mathrm{kilodays}.\end{array}$

To express the given value using a prefix, use Table 1–4.

$\begin{array}{c}n=\left(18\times {10}^{2}\mathrm{bucks}\times \frac{1\mathrm{hectobuck}}{{10}^{2}\mathrm{bucks}}\right)\\ =18\mathrm{hectobucks}\end{array}$

To express the given value using a prefix, use Table 1–4.

$\begin{array}{c}t=7\times {10}^{-7}\mathrm{seconds}\\ =\left(0.7\times {10}^{-6}\mathrm{seconds}\times \frac{1\mathrm{microsecond}}{{10}^{-6}\mathrm{seconds}}\right)\\ =0.7\mathrm{microseconds}.\end{array}$
