1.Scientific notation is used as a shorthand way of writing very large and very small numbers. 2.The decimal point is placed after the first significant figure, and then this decimal is multiplied by the appropriate power of 10. 3.The power of 10 is found as follows. • If the decimal point is moved left (for large numbers), the power of 10 is the number of places moved left. • If the decimal point is moved right (for small numbers), the power of 10 is negative and is the number of places moved right. 4.To write a number given in scientific notation as a decimal number, move the decimal point: (a) to the right for a positive power of 10 (b) to the left for a negative power of 10.
