    basically its when there are too many 0 for a number so those 0's turn into an exponent. like this one: 10,000,000,000. to many 0's so we oh! turn it into this! 10^9

    Scientific notation is a way to make these numbers easier to work with. In scientific notation, you move the decimal place until you have a number between 1 and 10. Then you add a power of ten that tells how many places you moved the decimal.
