UFO speed in MPH from nearest galaxy in one year 2021-05-22
From Joe:
If the next closest galaxy is 15 quadrillion miles away and there are 8760 hours in one year; how fast would a UFO have to fly to travel from the next galaxy, in MPH in one year ?
Google calculator gives this result: 1.7123288e+12
I don't understand what the "e+12" means.
How is that pronounced, ex. trillion, quadrillion etc..?

Plotting a function 2007-12-06
From Paula:
My son has a problem that says plot the point: 2x-3y=9
I have explained to him that there must be a function for y in order to plot that point, but he doesn't think so. The question above that one says find the function for y, and I assume we should use that function. Am I wrong? Can we plot a point without a y function.
