Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Scientific notation is a form of the metric system(or at least is commonly used in the metric system, hence the name "Scientific" notation.). Anyhow, scientific notation is simply a number multiplied against 10 to the power of a number. However it ultimately depends upon the number, for instance: x * 10^y  Where x is a number you converted into a unit digit, decimal number, which would be: 2.416 as an example. However y is the exponent from which on how many places it takes to reach the unit digit only decimal number. Let's show an example so you can understand what I'm saying: 2,416 would convert to: 2.416 x 10^3  Do you get how I got that? I moved the decimal place three times to the left to get '2.416' which would multiply against 10^3 to reacquire the number. Here are more examples: 546 > 5.46 x 10^2 0.08402 > 8.402 x 10^2 4,024 > 4.024 x 10^3 Anyhow, I hope this helps! Have a great day! {Ghostgate}
