How do you find the scientific notation for #919,100#?
Assumption: The given value is
Our objective is to end up with a single, non zero integer to the left of a decimal point and everything else to the right of it.
In doing this we change the value. Consequently we have to show the mathematical adjustment needed to return it back to the original value.
Our target is to have the pre-adjusted value of;
However in doin this we have changed its value. So how do we deal with this?
If you multiply any value by 1 you do not change its value. However, the value of 1 can take many forms. For example
Multiply 919100 by 1 but in the form of
Divide the denominator into the numerator giving
This can be written as
For being equivalent we write:
