4-4 How Do I Express And Use Numbers In Scientific Notation? Course 3 Warm Up Warm Up Lesson Presentation Lesson Presentation

2
Warm Up Order each set of numbers from least to greatest. Course Scientific Notation 1. 10, 10, 10, , 8, 8, , 2, 2, 2 04 –1 –2 10, 10, 10, –1– , 8, 8, –2 13 –4 –6 2, 2, 2, 2 31 –4–6

3
Learn to express large and small numbers in scientific notation and to compare two numbers written in scientific notation. Course Scientific Notation

4
Course Scientific Notation Vocabulary scientific notation

5
Course Scientific Notation An ordinary quarter contains about 97,700,000,000,000,000,000,000 atoms. The average size of an atom is about centimeters across. The length of these numbers in standard notation makes them awkward to work with. Scientific notation is a shorthand way of writing such numbers.

6
Course Scientific Notation To express any number in scientific notation, write it as the product of a power of ten and a number greater than or equal to 1 but less than 10. In scientific notation the number of atoms in a quarter is , and the size of each atom is –8 centimeters across.

7
Course Scientific Notation 135, ,000 Think: Move the decimal right 5 places = 100,000 5 Example 1: Translating Scientific Notation to Standard Notation Write the number in standard notation. A positive exponent means move the decimal to the right, and a negative exponent means move the decimal to the left. Helpful Hint

8
Course Scientific Notation Divide by the reciprocal Think: Move the decimal left 3 places –3 10 = – Write the number in standard notation. Example 1B: Translating Scientific Notation to Standard Notation Continued

9
Course Scientific Notation 20,100 Think: Move the decimal right 4 places = 10, ,000 Example 1C: Translating Scientific Notation to Standard Notation Continued Write the number in standard notation.

10
Course Scientific Notation 2,870,000, ,000,000,000 Think: Move the decimal right 9 places = 1,000,000,000 9 Write the number in standard notation. Check It Out: Example 1A

11
,000 Course Scientific Notation Divide by the reciprocal. Think: Move the decimal left 5 places – –5 – = 100,000 Write the number in standard notation ,000 Check It Out: Example 1B

12
10 = 100,000, ,000, Course Scientific Notation Write the number in standard notation. Check It Out: Example 1C 509,000,000 Think: Move the decimal right 8 places.

13
Course Scientific Notation A number less than 1 will have a negative exponent when written in scientific notation. Helpful Hint

14
Additional Example 2: Translating Standard Notation to Scientific Notation Course Scientific Notation Think: The decimal needs to move left to change 7.09 to , so the exponent will be negative Think: The decimal needs to move 3 places to get a number between 1 and Set up scientific notation. Check –3 = = Write in scientific notation. So written in scientific notation is –3.

15
Check It Out: Example 2 Course Scientific Notation Think: The decimal needs to move left to change 8.11 to , so the exponent will be negative Think: The decimal needs to move 4 places to get a number between 1 and Set up scientific notation. Check = = –4 Write in scientific notation. So written in scientific notation is –4.

16
Course Scientific Notation A pencil is 18.7 cm long. If you were to lay 10,000 pencils end-to-end, how many millimeters long would they be? Write the answer in scientific notation. 187 mm 10,000 1 centimeter = 10 millimeters 18.7 centimeters = 187 millimeters Multiply by 10. 1,870,000 mm Example 3: Application Find the total length. Multiply.

17
Course Scientific Notation Think: The decimal needs to move 6 places. In scientific notation the 10,000 pencils would be mm long, laid end-to-end. Example 3 Continued Set up scientific notation. Think: The decimal needs to move right to change 1.87 to 1,870,000, so the exponent will be positive.

18
Course Scientific Notation An oil rig can hoist 2,400,000 pounds with its main derrick. It distributes the weight evenly between 8 wire cables. What is the weight that each wire cable can hold? Write the answer in scientific notation. 2,400,000 pounds ÷ 8 cables = 300,000 pounds per cable Each cable can hold 300,000 pounds. Check It Out: Example 3 Find the weight each cable is expected to hold by dividing the total weight by the number of cables. Now write 300,000 pounds in scientific notation.

19
Course Scientific Notation Think: The decimal needs to move right to change 3.0 to 300,000, so the exponent will be positive. Think: The decimal needs to move 5 places. In scientific notation, each cable can hold pounds Set up scientific notation. Check It Out: Example 3 Continued

20
Course Scientific Notation A certain cell has a diameter of approximately 4.11 x meters. A second cell has a diameter of 1.5 x meters. Which cell has a greater diameter? = x x Compare powers of 10. Additional Example 4: Life Science Application Compare the values between 1 and 10. The first cell has a greater diameter > x > 1.5 x 10 -5

21
Course Scientific Notation A certain cell has a diameter of approximately 5 x meters. A second cell has a diameter of 5.11 x meters. Which cell has a greater diameter? = x x Compare powers of 10. Check It Out: Example 4 Compare the values between 1 and 10. The second cell has a greater diameter. 5 < x < 5.11 x 10 -3

22
Course Scientific Notation Lesson Quiz: Part I Write each number in standard notation – ,000,000 17, – Write each number in scientific notation. 5. Order the numbers from least to greatest. T 2 10 –4, 9 10 –5, 7 10 – –5, 9 10 –5, 2 10 –4

23
Course Scientific Notation Lesson Quiz: Part II 6. A human body contains about microliters of blood. Write this number in standard notation. 5,600,000
