2. Relevant equations

(1.73 x 10^3) (2.0 x 10^3) = 3.5 x_______ <--------fill in the blank
When do you press the exp button and what other buttons do you push?

3. The attempt at a solution

So far pressing the exp button after pressing 3 did not work, some random number came up. The solution is in the manual for class work , but the steps on how to do it are not.

Try this:
(1 x 10^3) x (1 x 10^3) = ?
= (10^3) x (10^3) = ?
= 1000 x 1000 = ?
