It is the special way of writing too large numbers or small numbers into exponential notation and also

represents the number in simplest way with decimal notation.

Example of Scientific notation as shown below.

X * 10

Step 1: Multiply the coefficients

2 * 4 = 8

Step 2: Add the exponents because the base terms are equal. (10 ^5 and 10 ^8)

5+8 =13

Now 10 ^5 * 10 ^8 = 10 ^13

Step 3: Multiply 8 *(10 ^13)

Scientific notation in lowest terms is 8 * 10 ^13

Step 1: Multiply the coefficients

0.3 * 5 =1.5

Step 2: Subtract the Exponents by using exponent rule. (10 ^-3 and 10 ^8)

-3 + 8 = 5

Now 10 ^-3 x 10 ^8 = 10 ^5

Step 3: Multiply1.5 * (10 ^5)

Scientific notation in lowest terms is 1.5 * 10 ^5
