Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to move the decimal till it's between the first and second numbers. Count the number of spaces you have moved it and note it as (whatever the mumber is) x 10^n (n being the number of places you moved the decimal. In this case, you will move your decimal 13 places. So your answer would be 4.81 x 10^13. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so, if you move count from the decimal in 4.81 to the end of the last 0, you get 13
