I'm not sure how to calculate the answer into scientific notation

Answer provided by our tutors

Our solver is specifically designed for algebraic manipulations and the expression you are simplifying is purely numeric.  Manually, you could isolate the exponents 10^8 and 10^5 and as a fraction they would simplify to 10^(8-5)=10^3.  The solver, however, is converting numeric terms into prime factors and cancelling common prime factors.
