# How do you express 4.1times10^-3 in standard notation?

Feb 3, 2017

$0.0041$

#### Explanation:

Since $4.1 \times {10}^{-} 3 \text{ is already in standard form}$

I am assuming that you require the number that is represented
by $4.1 \times {10}^{-} 3$

Consider the general form of ${10}^{n}$

•" If n is positive move the decimal point to the right by n"

•"If n is negative move the decimal point to the left by n"

$\text{here "n=-3larrcolor(red)"move 3 places left}$

It would probably help by placing some 0's before the 4

$\Rightarrow 4.1 \times {10}^{-} 3 = 0.0041$
