    Orders of Magnitude. It confuses me so much, I don't need the definition, I need step-by-step instruction.

    10^x

    That is order of magnitude. Anything that is 10 to the x power.

    10^5 = 100,000 There you go, order of magnitude.

    Your joking right? There's nothing else to it? It seems way too simple. If numbers differ by 1 order of magnitude, x is about ten times different in quantity than y. If values differ by 2 orders of magnitude, they differ by a factor of about 100. Two numbers of the same order of magnitude have roughly the same scale: the larger value is less than ten times the smaller value.

    order is a pattern in which we take the higher numbers into power of ten . that power call order

    see example here we have two values 10^2 and 10^4 so we can say that the second value is greater than the first value by oder of two

    Yes, the definition is more complicated than it is! So remember, keep things simple and enjoy life :)
