Best Answer

An exponent tells how many times to multiply a number by it self.

In this table, the symbol ^ indicates the exponent -

(In case the symbol came through garbled, it is the shifted 6)

10 ^5 = 100000

10 ^4 = 10000

10 ^3 = 1000

10 ^2 = 100

10 ^1 - 10

Following that logic -

10 ^0 = 1

10 ^-1 = .1

10 ^-2 = .01

So: 3 x 10 ^-2 = .03
