Reversing this, you are dividing by 10 by moving the decimal point to the left. For example, take 73. If you move the decimal point to the right you get 7.3. This is the same as: 73/10 = 7.3. If you move a decimal point 2 spaces to the right, you are multiplying by 100, or more generally if you move the decimal point n spaces to the right, you are multiplying by 10^n.
