Scientific Notation Copyright Scott Storla 2015

Scientific Notation A number written in scientific notation has two factors. One factor is a real number with absolute value greater than or equal to 1 but less than 10. The other factor has a base of 10 and an integer exponent. Copyright Scott Storla 2015 The numbers below are not in scientific notation

Multiplying with Scientific Notation Copyright Scott Storla 2015

Multiplying Using Scientific Notation The commutative property of multiplication the order of the factors doesn’t effect the product. The associative property of multiplication the grouping of the factors doesn’t effect the product.
