    1 * 10^11

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Take the gulf of mexico and divide by the rate to get the number of seconds

    2,434,000,000,000,000 / 16790

    Change each to scientific notation

    2 * 10 ^15 / 1.6 * 10^ 4

    Rounding

    2 * 10^15 / 2 * 10^4

    Dividing the numbers 2/2 = 1

    Dividing the exponents means subtracting the powers = 10 ^ (15-4) = 10 ^1

    1 * 10^11
