Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Please don't give out direct answers :) @DecentNabeel Instead, try engaging the asker so they can learn better and understand where your answer is coming from. As the saying goes… \(\\\color{darkblue}{Give~a~man~a~fish,~he~eats~for~a~day.}\) \(\\\color{pink}{Teach~a~man~to~fish,~he~eats~for~a~lifetime.}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when the value is expressed in scientific notation then look for the highest power, the n, as shown by @mathway above also.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When comparing scientific notation, first make sure that there is only one nonzero digit before the decimal point. For example: \[ 42.34\times 10^3 = 4.234\times 10^4\\ 0.035 \times 10^{3} = 3.5\times 10^{5} \]Once in this form, you only need to compare the exponents. For example \(5<4\), so clearly the first number is greater than the second one. If the exponents are equal, then you just need to compare the numbers in front. For example: \[ 4.35\times 10^5\\ 4.36\times 10^5 \]The exponents are the same, but the second number is greater.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Moving the decimal point to the right decreases the exponent by one. Moving it to the left increases the exponent by one. For example: \[ 30.2\times 10^2 = (30.2 \div 10) \times(10^3\times 10) = 3.02\times 10^4 \]Dividing and multiplying by ten is the same as multiplying by \(1\).
