How to convert numbers from decimal to scientific?
To convert a decimal number to scientific notation, move the decimal point to the left or right so that there is only one non-zero digit before it. Then, multiply or divide the number by 10, as many times as the decimal point was moved. The exponent of 10 will be the number of times the decimal point was moved.
What is e-notation?
Exponential notation (e-notation), is a way of expressing numbers that are too large or too small to be conveniently written in decimal form. A number is written as the product of a coefficient and a power of 10. The 'e' notation is another way to express the scientific notation, written as ae-b instead of a x 10^-b.
