How do you write #35, 615# in scientific notation?
The number in question is written
Converting values to SN or Scientific Notation means first writing the number as if it was less than 10, and then figuring out what multiple of 10 it needs to be multiplied by to get the original value.
If we write the original number as a value less than 10:
Now, to figure out the value it needs to be multiplied, we can simply divide the original number by the reduced value:
Finally, we figure out what the multiple needs to be written as, when given as an exponent of 10. The way to do this is to count the number of zeroes, starting at the ones place.
For the number 10,000, there are 4 zeroes, starting at the ones place. This means:
Now, we can finish the conversion:
We rewrite the number where the most significant digit is on the left of the decimal and the rest of the trailing digits are on the right of the decimal:
The number of decimal places we moved (in this case
