    scientific notation means only numbers between 1 and 10. Correct me if I'm wrong, but you go to school in Canada, possible ontario?

    "Any given number can be written in the form of a×10b in many ways; for example 350 can be written as 3.5×102 or 35×101 or 350×100." *from wikipedia.

    In scientific notation, the exponent b is chosen such that the absolute value of a remains at least one but less than ten (1 ≤ |a| < 10).
