Scientific notation is a way to express either a very large, or a very small number.

10x5.34 is an example of scientific notation. So, move the decimal point to the right (since there is a positive exponent). It then becomes 53,000.

If there is a negative exponent, move the decimal point to the left instead of the right. 10x4.6-3 would become 0.0046.
