The exponent of 10 tells you how many places to move the decimal point to the left if it is minus or to the right if it is plus.

scientific notation tells how many times you will move or add zero either left(positive) or right (negative). exponent tells you how many times you will multiply its coefficient.

Yes, but only to the power of 10. Scientific notation Ex: 4.6 x 10^6 (NOTE: ^ = exponent) The number in the 4.6 position has to be equal to or greater than 1 and less than 10. The number in the 10 position always has to be a 10. The number in the ^6 position tells how many places to move the decimal. If the exponent is positive the decimal moves to the right when you simplify into standard notation. If it is negative the decimal moves to the left when simplified into standard notation.

The exponent in the scientific equation tells you how many decimals to go over because you are multiplying 10 that many number of times. For example, if the number were 1.056 X 107 the number in regular format would be 10,560,000

All scientific notation does. For example, if you have 600,000, then scientific notation would read 6*10^5, and the 5 tells you to move the decimal point to the left five numbers. And if you have 0.00006 it would read 6*10^-5, and the -5 tells you to move the decimal point to the right five numbers.

The exponent tells you how many spaces to move the decimal, remember to add zeros as needed. If the exponent is negative make it a decimal number less than one by moving the decimal to the left. If the exponent is positive make the decimal number greater than one by moving the decimal to the right.

The number is written in scientific notation. The -02 at the end tells you to move the decimal point two places to the left. That gives the following value:0.0101784001464844
