    scientific notation general form is N * 10^n where N is a number between 1 and 10 ( not including 10) and n is an integer ( not 0)

    Okay, I like to use the King Henry Died Monday Drinking Chocolate Milk to help with conversions. So: King=Kilometers Henry=hectometers Died=Decameters Monday=meters Drinking=Decimeters chocolate=centimeters Milk=millimeters this is fairly easy to use. you start with millimeters so you move the decimal point to the left to get to kilometers. you'd have to move it 6 places to the left.. do you understand what I mean? if not, I'll explain it in a different way

    So tell me what you'd get and I'll help you convert it into Scientific Notation if that's what you need to do

    I need to convert 4012 millimeters into kilometers and if I move the decimal I get 0.4012

    How many place would I move the decimal

    right now, you have 0.4012 Decameters... move it 2 more places to the left to get Kilometers

    your decimal point was at the end when it was millimeters... you want it to be at the END of kilometers.. so you move it that many times until it is.

    hahahaha c: so your answer should be 0.004012 Km. do you need to make it into scientific notation?
