Remember that any number can be written as a fraction first by putting the number over one.In this case:3.27271Now we can multiply the numerator (top number) and the denominator (bottom number) to get rid of the decimal. Remember when we multiply a number with a decimal by 10 we move the decimal point over to the right by one step. So to move the decimal place over by 4 steps, we multiply by 10 four times or 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 or 10,000.3.27271X10,00010,000=32,72710,000

(number) X 10^(power) example 2.343 X 10^8 ---------------------------- 1450 = 1.45 x 103 basically you shift the decimal place over to the left and stop just before the last number. Multiply this new number by 10 to the power of the number of decimal places you shifted by. 0.00145 = 1.45 x 10-3 its the same thing for decimal numbers except you shift the decimal place to the right and stop just after the first number greater than 0. you multiply this number by 10 to the negative power of the number of decimal places you shifted by.
