After placing the decimal, count the number of places the decimal had to move to get the exponent of 10.If the decimal moves to the left, then the exponent to multiply 10 will be in the positive.If you're seeing this message, it means we're having trouble loading external resources on our website.
The calculator will generate a detailed step-by-step explanation for each operation.
To convert a number to scientific notation, place a decimal after the first number that is not a zero, or, after the first number that between 1 and 9.
This calculator supports multiplication and division numbers in scientific notation.
The calculator supports conversion from scientific notation to decimal, and vice versa.
If you think of each move as a hop then you can find what power of ten to multiply the coefficient by.
The example below shows that 2.3 multiplied by 10 All the examples above have been of large numbers.
Scientific Notation is a handy way to write very large and very small numbers.
Instead of having to use lots of digits, scientific notation allows shorter versions of the number to be written.
Your base is always 10 Thus, 500 = 5 × 10 More examples of scientific notation: 1) 75000 75000 = 75000.0 Move the decimal point 4 places to the left between 7 and 5.
We get 7.5000, which is the same as 7.5 Since we moved it 4 places to the left, your exponent is 4 and your base is still 10.
