# How do you convert #2.3 x10^-2# into expanded notation?

##### 1 Answer

The correct answer should be:

#### Explanation:

By definition, expanded notation produces an expression which represents each place holder's value.

**NB:** Standard notation is always represented by the sums of all the values multiplied by

for e.g.

428 =

However, this question takes this idea one step further and introduces decimal places.

By using the above example, if we were given 428.39,

this would be expressed as:

428.39 =

Beautiful isn't it.

As one can see, the degree (the exponents) of the

With this in mind, by looking at your question,

**Step one:** (turn the expression into decimal format)

**Step Two:** (convert to Standard notation)

Since this expression only has one numerical value of 6 which is occupying the hundredth's position, we multiply 6 by

Now with regards to the algebraic terms, such as

For term clarity,

"**Numerical Form**" of 42 has a "**Standard Form**" of 40 + 2 which can be expressed in the "**Standard Notation**" of
