# How do you write 0.007 in scientific notation?

Jul 13, 2015

For scientific notation you need one non-zero digit in front of the decimalpoint.

#### Explanation:

In order to get there you have to move the dp 3 places to the right, in other words, you can rewrite as:

$= \frac{7}{1000} = \frac{7}{10} ^ 3 = 7 \cdot {10}^{-} 3$
