Also, please, how does one calculate it?

& how mnany zroes after a leading 1 are we talkng about?

You multiply the indices together

(10^170)^5

= 10^(170 x 5)

= 10^(850)

= 1 x 10^(850) in scientific notation

850 zeroes after a leading 1

Multiply the exponents!

((10^(170))^(5)

10^(170 * 5)

= 10^(850)

-----------

For example,

x^3 * x^5 = (x * x * x) * (x * x * x * x * x) = x^(3 + 5) = x^(8)

Clearly, their are eight x's in multiplication.
