    the easy way to do this look for the decimal point and count how many places to get "a" what direction did you have to move?

    if you moved right you multiply so to keep the same value you divide to divide means multiplying by a negative power if you moved left you divided to keep the balance multiply by 10 to the positive number of places you moved
