    Here's how: Let's say you have a number: 12345. To convert this to scientific notation, do the following: (1) Move the decimal to the the left until you have a single number in front: 1.2345 (2) Now multiply by 10 to the power of the number of places you moved the decimal; in this case it would be 4, so you multiply by 10^4 to get: 1.2345 x 10^4 Now for decimal values: 0.000123 To convert to scientific notation, do the following: (1) Move the decimal to the right until you have a single number in front: 1.23 (2) Now multiply by 10 to the _negative_ power of the number of places you moved the decimal; in this case it would be 4, so you multiply by 10^-4 to get: 1.23 x 10^-4 The scientific notation number and the original number have the exact same value because you're multiplying by powers of 10, which has the effect of moving the decimal. Multiplying by a positive power of 10 moves the decimal to the right, multiplying by a negative power of 10 moves the decimal to the left. (Don't get confused, though ... it's backward when you convert from regular to scientific). this will explain.
