Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There's no generally about it, it depends on the number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you want it in the form #.####*10^x with however many #'s are appropriate, but always one to the left of the decimal. Then you look at how many digits you have to move that decimal to get to the actual number you're converting to scientific notation. In this case you move the decimal two spots to the right so x=2 1.6252*10^2 of you are moving the decimal to the left x is negative
