If a number written in scientific notation has an exponent of 10 that is negative, then it is a small number; otherwise, it is a large number.

If the exponent is not negative, then a number written in scientific notation is greater than or equal to 1.

Squaring is a number raised to the power of two. Scientific notation is a number multiplied by 10 to the power of a number.

As far as it is possible to tell, neither of the two are in scientific 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

It is scientific notation if it is written in the form a*10b where 1 â‰¤ |a| < 10 and b is an integer. The vertical bars around a indicate its modulus: that is, the non-negative value of a.

Scientific notation is a way of representing numbers, usually very large or very small, in the forma*10b where 1 â‰¤ |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.So if |a| > 1or |a| â‰¥ 10or the base for the exponent is not 10 (however, it may be written as E for example a*Eb)or b is not an integerthen the number is not in scientific notation.

Yes. ^_^

That system makes it much easier to write the numbers, remember them, tell them to others, and notice mistakes when they're written wrong.

Yes, every positive real number has a real square root. If you would write your number in scientific notation, I could tell you what the root is.
