Transcript of Scientific Notation

Example 2
Scientific Notation
Scientific Notation-is a way to express very large and very small numbers;in scientific notation,the first factor,the coefficient,is a number that is greater than or equal to 1 and less than 10 and the second factor is a power of 10.
Step # 2
The first factor in the scientific notation of 3,600 is 3.6. You will Move the decimal point to get a factor greater than or equal to 1 and less than 10.

Scientific Notation
There are two ways to make a scientific notation.
Ex.4200,you move it to the left 3 times.
Ex.0.09, you move to the right 2 times.
5,300,000 is 5.3 × 10^6

0.0000000089 is 8.9 × 10^-9.

24327 = 2.4327 x 10^4
Step # 3
The second factor is 103.The decimal point is moved 3 places to the left.You will Use this number as the power of 10.
Scientific Notation is a method of writing numbers as the product of two factors where the first factor is a is a number greater then or equal to 1. But it is less then 10 and the second factor will be a power of 10.
Step #4
The representation of one hour in scientific notation is 3.6 × 103 seconds.
Example 1
Example 3
First you move decimal to the left 5 time .
So then you put it like this 24327=2.4327*10^4.
First you move the decimal to the 6 places to the left.
Step # 1
first you have to move the decimal to the right eight times.
Then you put it like this 0.0000000089=8.9*10^-8.
Then you will put it like this 5,300,000=5.3*10^6.
