## anonymous 4 years ago Write 0.0003532 in scientific notation.

1. anonymous

how did you get that

2. anonymous

$$3.532 \times 10^{-4 }$$

3. anonymous

count the decimal places until you have one digit to the left of the decimal point

4. anonymous

then?

5. anonymous

that was wrong. since you count 4 places to the right, it is $10^{-4}$ and you read off the digits as you see them

thanks
