1 Scientific Notation A short-hand way of writing large numbers without writing all of the zeros. *** A number is in scientific notation if the first factor is greater than or equal to 1 and less than 10 and the second factor is a power of 10. Example(s): 1 x x x 10 -6

2 The Distance From the Sun to the Earth 93,000,000

3 Step 1 Move decimal left Leave only one number in front of decimal

4 Step 2 Write number without zeros

5 Step 3 Count how many places you moved decimal Make that your power of ten

6 The power of ten is 7 because the decimal moved 7 places.

7 93,000, Standard Form 9.3 x Scientific Notation

8 Practice Problem 1) 98,500,000 = 9.85 x 10 ? 2) 64,100,000,000 = 6.41 x 10 ? 3) 279,000,000 = 2.79 x 10 ? 4) 4,200,000 = 4.2 x 10 ? Write in scientific notation. Decide the power of ten x x x x 10 6

9 More Practice Problems 1) 734,000,000 = ______ x ) 870,000,000,000 = ______x ) 90,000,000,000 = _____ x On these, decide where the decimal will be moved. 1)7.34 x ) 8.7 x ) 9 x 10 10

10 Complete Practice Problems 1) 50,000 2) 7,200,000 3) 802,000,000,000 Write in scientific notation. 1) 5 x ) 7.2 x ) 8.02 x 10 11

11 Scientific Notation to Standard Form Move the decimal to the right 3.4 x 10 5 in scientific notation 340,000 in standard form move the decimal

12 Write in Standard Form 6.27 x x ,270,000 90,100
