Okay, so we want to compare our small illustrated earthquake with our Landers earthquake. So Orlando's is 7.3, and then our smallest one would be, um, that's going to be about, um, 4.55 point. Oh, right in the middle. So four points, 75 is our smallest. Okay? To compare or ratio. We want to compare this value here. So let's raise 10 to both sites. We get 10 to the power of arms is equal to X over X. Not so we want our Landers Earthquake sort of sense of power of 7.3 over 10 to the power of 4.75 Let's put that into our champion eater over attentive power of four points 75 So we see that this is, um, this is equal to approximately 562 So this is 562 times more powerful than our smallest
