## divalove27 2 years ago What is the value of 106 in standard form? 0.00001 0.000001 1,000,000 100,000

I think that number is supposed to be $$10^6$$, or 10^6. Do you have any guesses?

I know, though... $$10^6$$ is another way of saying $$10 \times 10 \times 10 \times 10 \times 10 \times 10$$. That's what the notation means. And look at $$10\times 10=100$$. Then $$100*10=1,000$$. You are "tacking on" a zero, for each $$10$$ that you multiply. So how many zeroes will you have if you multiply $$6$$ of them?

Standard form, here, means just the plain old number $$\sf{by\ itself}$$.

I guess "standard form" is scientific notation in Britain, but none of the answers are in scientific form.
