Given that $$0.0011011 \times 10^q \gt 10^2$$, and $$q$$ is an integer, which of the following is the smallest possible value of $$q$$?
Correct. [[Snippet]] __Plug In__ $$q = 5$$. Shift the decimal point 5 spaces to the right. >$$0.0011011 \times 10^5 = 110.11$$ Since 110.11 is greater than 100, and since any smaller answer ($$q=4$$) will result in a number smaller than 100, this is the correct answer.
Incorrect. [[Snippet]] __Plug In__ $$q = 4$$. Shift the decimal point 4 spaces to the right. >$$0.0011011 \times 10^4 = 11.011$$ Since 11.011 is *not* greater than 100, this is not the correct answer.
Incorrect. [[Snippet]] __Plug In__ $$q = 3$$. Shift the decimal point 3 spaces to the right. >$$0.0011011 \times 10^3 = 1.1011$$ Since 1.1011 is *not* greater than 100, this is not the correct answer.
Incorrect. [[Snippet]] The number 6 is _not_ the least possible value for which $$0.0011011 \times 10^q \gt 10^2$$.
Incorrect. [[Snippet]] The number 7 is _not_ the least possible value for which $$0.0011011 \times 10^q \gt 10^2$$.
