1 Scientific Notation And Significant Digits Objective: to use scientific notation and significant digits

2 Scientific notation A number expressed in the form of n × 10 x where 1 < n < 10 and x is an element of the integers Example 2.3 × 10 3

3 Example change into scientific notation 429,000, × 10 8 move the decimal 8 places to the left 7.05 × 10 4 move the decimal 4 places to the right

4 Significant digits Number of digits that have a purpose other than a place holder Examples: has 2 significant digits has 4 significant digits 2.10 × 10 4 has 3 significant digits has 2 significant digits

5 Try These! Write each number in scientific notation 103, (5.03 × )(3.32 × 10 5 ) 1.03 × × × × 10 5 solution solution × 10 3 solution solution End Show

6 Try These!

7 (5.03 × )(3.32 × 10 5 ) (5.03 × 3.32)(10 -3 × 10 5 ) × × 10 3 Try These!
