# Question #af3a5

May 2, 2015

I'm not sure what you really are asking but I'm going to guess that you want to know how to write $000000.2345$
in standard scientific notation.

If this is the case:
$000000.2345 = 2.345 \times {10}^{-} 1$

Standard scientific notation is of the form
$a . b c d \ldots \times {10}^{k}$
where $a$ is a single digit (non-zero unless the entire value is zero;
and $k$ is the number of positions the decimal point of $a . b c d \ldots$ needs to be moved to the right to represent the actual value (a negative value for $k$ indicates the decimal point needs to be moved to the left).
