Scientific notation is a way to express very large or very small numbers. For very large exponent is positive; for very small exponent is negative. For example, 1,000,000 is 1 x 10 to the plus 6 exponent; 0.000001 is 1 x 10 to the negative 6 exponent

You subtract the exponent of the divisor from that of the dividend.

No, if there is a negative number then you put that many numbers before the root number. For example, 7x10^-5= .000007

Scientific notation is a way of representing numbers, usually very large or very small, in the form a*10^b where 1

Write the mantissa as a negative number.

It took me forever to learn scientific notation because of how the exponents seem backwards. When you move the decimal to the left (towards the negative numbers in a line) your exponent will be positive. When you move the decimal to the right (towards the positive numbers in line) your exponent will be negative. So since we need a number between 1-9 in order have scientific notation we have to move our decimal one place to the left. 10.4 -> 1.04 x 101

Scientific notation is a way of representing numbers, usually very large or very small, in the form a*10^b where 1

The two numbers shown in a scientific notation are decimals and a 10 with a positive or negative exponent. Example: 2.50 times 10^2= 250 Example2) 2.50 times 10^-4= 0.000250 Hint: if a exponent is a - it will be small, if it is greater than 1 it will be big. 10^0 will be1.

Scientific notation is a way of representing numbers, usually very large or very small, in the form a*10^b where 1

Scientific notation is a way of representing numbers, usually very large or very small, in the forma*10b where 1 ? |a| < 10 is a decimal number and b is an integer (negative or positive).a is called the mantissa and b is called the exponent.

Whether the number is positive or negative is not relevant. What matters is the sign of the exponent. If THAT is positive then the decimal point is moved to the right.
