To move the decimal to the right 3 spaces, you would multiply it by 10 to the third. Let's say I had 7. And so it'll be 2.

I'll need 4 spaces, So, 1, 2, 3, 4. Scientific notation numbers may be written in different forms.

How to Write Numbers in Scientific Notation

This right here is just multiplying something by 1. You have five 0's. Anyway, hopefully, you found that scientific notation drill useful. So this might be a faster way of doing it.

The number 3. And if you want to internalize why that makes sense, 10 to the fifth is 10,000. This is a little bit more than 1. Next tutorial.

Scientific notation review. Just to mix things up. So you take this decimal and go 1, 2, 3 to the left.

Convert Standard Form To Scientific Notation

How do I write 12 in scientific notation? And when I had 74, and I had to shift the decimal 1 more to the right, I had to throw in a 0 here.

Scientific Notation

Same drill. So this is equal to 74,000. And another way to check that you got the right answer is if you have a 1 right here, if you count the 1, 1 including the 0's to the right of the decimal should be the same as the negative exponent here.
