Best answer

Step 1: Make all the exponents the same To add or subtract numbers in scientific notation we must make all the exponents the same:



1,99 \times 10^{-26}=0,199 \times 10^{-25} \text { and } \\

1,67 \times 10^{-27}=0,0167 \times 10^{-25}



Step 2 : Carry out the addition and subtraction Now that the exponents are the same we can simply add or subtract the $N$ part of each number:




Step 3: Write the final answer To get the final answer we put the common exponent back:

$$-2,5743 \times 10^{-25}$$
