How do you write #18,050# in scientific notation?

1 Answer

The standard scientific notation of #18,050# is #1.8050 xx 10^4#


Standard scientific notations can be written in the form of #Mxx10^x# where M is #1<=M<10#. Moving the decimal point to the left corresponds to a positive sign ( + ).

The number of places you move the decimal point in either directions (left and right), that's also the number of the exponent.

If ever you forgot what sign to attach in the exponent, just make a huge pout to reveal your LIPS, a mnemonic to mean Left Is Positive Sign. Right is negative ( - ).
