SCH 3U1 – Scientific Notation Review Scientific notation is used to more clearly express either very large or very small numbers. In scientific notation a number is expressed in the form x X 10 n. x – greater than 1 but less than 10 10 n is a power of 10. 1. To determine the value of x move the decimal place in the number so that only 1 non-zero digit is to the left of the decimal point.

2. To determine the value of the exponent n count the number of places the decimal point moves to the left or right. If the decimal point moves to the right express n as a negative exponent. If the decimal point moves to the left, express the n as a positive exponent. 3. Use the values you have determined for x and n to express the number in the form x X 10 n.
