  • 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


Explanation 1
Explanation 1

  • 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


Explanation 2
Explanation 2

  • 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
