So let's take the calculations per second, which, as we read it is a scientific notation, because notation number would be 4.66 times 10 and we got over the death toll. 12345678 times. We're gonna multiply it by, um, 60 seconds for a minute, right? So 60 seconds could be written as six times 10 to the first power. Now 4.66 times six is 27 0.96 then times 10 to the US Add the powers together. A plus one is the ninth power. Now we gotta move. This death will back one place to 2.796 But because it went down by one, we have to move the power up by one. So my first answer is right here. This is how many calculations per minute. How many coaches to caucus for our Well, let's take the minute one, unless do the same thing. Divided by another 60 cause they're 60 minutes in an hour. So let's multiply it by again. Six times 10 to the one first power. So 66 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in our Let's see here. Um, so let's take 2.796 times that by six. And we get 16 0.776 times, 10 to the at the powers together 10 and one. Make 11. Now I gotta move that decimal back one again. Right to 1.6776 And because it went back one down line, we have to make the power go up one. So there is my helmet calculations per hour.
