1. Scientific Notation Every positive number X can be written as:
(1 < N < 10) x 10some positive or negative integer Where N represents the numerals of X with the decimal point after the first nonzero digit.

2. Positive Exponents 101 = 10 102 = 10X10= 100 103 = 10X10X10 = 1000 104 = 10X10X10X10 = 10,000

3. Negative Exponents 10-1 = 1/10 = 0.1 10-2 = 1/100 = 0.01 10-3 = 1/1000 = 0.001 10-4 = 1/10000 =

4. Scientific Notation We use the idea of exponents to make it easier to work with large and small numbers. 10,000 = 1 X 104 250,000 = 2.5 X 105 Count places to the left until there is one number to the left of the decimal point. 230,000 = ? 35,000 = ? 2.3 x 105 3.5 x 104

5. Scientific Notation Continued
= 6 X 10-5 = 4.5 X 10-4 Count places to the right until there is one number to the left of the decimal point 0.003 = ? = ? 3 x 10-3 2.5 x 10-6

Multiplying with Scientific Notation
Add the Exponents 102 X 103 = 105 100 X 1000 = 100,000

Multiplying with Scientific Notation
(2.3 X 102)(3.3 X 103) 230 X 3300 Multiply the Coefficients 2.3 X 3.3 = 7.59 Add the Exponents 102 X 103 = 105 7.59 X 105 759,000

Multiplying with Scientific Notation
(4.6 X 104) X (5.5 X 103) = ? (3.1 X 103) X (4.2 X 105) = ?

Dividing with Scientific Notation
Subtract the Exponents 104/103 = 101 10000X 1000 = 10

Dividing with Scientific Notation
(3.3 X 104)/ (2.3 X 102) 33000 / 230 = Divide the Coefficients 3.3/ 2.3 = Subtract the Exponents 104 / 102 = 102 X 102

Dividing with Scientific Notation
(4.6 X 104) / (5.5 X 103) = ? (3.1 X 103) / (4.2 X 105) = ?
