Scientific notation

Influenced by Socrates

- Scientific notation is used to express the size of really big numbers such as
- 1,111,000,000,000
- Or really small numbers like this
- 0.00000000000012
- The way the first & second number would look is this
- 1.111x10¹² 1.2x10¯¹³

- You can do this by if the number is in standard form exp. 1,000,000 just count how many decimal places to the LEFT (if it’s a whole number) until you get the decimal behind the first number

- You’re probably are wondering why the decimal has a negative exponent its because they are less then one and need to use numbers to represent numbers less than one exp.
- 0.00009 is less than 1.00000

- 1,000
- 3.0x10³
