When you multiply by ten to a power, move the decimal point to the right by the number of places of the power. 3.6 x 10 ^4 move decimal 4 places to right = 36000

Multiplying a real number by a positive power of ten moves the decimal point that number (the exponent) of places to the right. Multiplying by a negative power of ten moves it to the left. For example, the -3 power of 10 is 1/1000; multiplying by that moves the decimal point 3 places to the left.

rounded to two decimal places after the decimal point: 6.73

To multiply any number by 100 move the decimal point two places to the right, like this > 7.4 x 100 = 740
