Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i mean standard form :P silly me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you have some number given as:\[a.bcde\times10^x\]then this just means move the decimal place x number of times to the right. if x was negative, then it means move it x places to the left.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we moved the decimal point 2 places to the right because we have to the power of 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but wouldn't the decimal be a comma and how many zeros would be at the end?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no  comma's are generally used to group numbers into groups of three  to make them easier to read. e.g.:\[1,376,234.023\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like 5.9 x 10^2 it would be 590 right?

juciystar234

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because those are the only ones in my book like that. the rest are like 5 x 10^11/ 3.4 x 10^3 etc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes that is correct because: dw:1349822896694:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so if the decimal point needs to move right by more places than you have digits, then you just keep adding zeros to the number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[6.678\times10^2=667.8\]as I showed up above.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it has no comma

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you only add extra zeros to the number if the power of ten means it has to go beyond the digits already available

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ok so these 9.9673x10^2, 7.02x10^1 would have decimals and not commas too?

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and again, comma's are only used to separate digits into groups of three to make the number easier to read. so if the number has 3 or less digits (before the decimal point), then you would not have any comma. some examples of comma usage: 123.12 1,123.12 12,123.12 1,123,123.12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so strategy is: 1) convert the number from scientific notation to standard form 2) group every 3 digits to the left of the decimal point with comma's
