Ok so whenever meteoroids hit earth how do people remove it?

I was doing my science homework about astronomy and there was a picture of it in my book and there was a big hole but no asteroid near it.......

When it hits the debris blasts outward and lands in random places so there is never a whole meteor.

We dont. The meteor either erodes away like everythig does in time, it buries itself, or it disintegrates on impact.

They dig them up and sell them,
They are quite expensive

I heard a small pebble of it costs 3 times more than 1 pound of gold

Depends on what it's made of
But, anything from outer-space
Will cost a bit- seeing how you can't just drive there and get one yourself

You can buy meteorites in any museum shop and on line. They are not very expensive.

Some of it burns up in the atmosphere, most of it is eroded quickly, and the rest is mined

A meteor comes into the atmosphere at several thousand miles an hour, many times the speed of sound. Imagine what happens when it hits the ground. Splattered all over the place. There are fragments left in the crater, but most of it is scattered. The Sudbury mines in Cananda are actually mining the core of an ancient meteorite below the surface.
