# How do you write 9.81 times 10^-3 in standard notation?

Jul 11, 2016

0.00981

#### Explanation:

To go from exponential form to standard notation you would move back (to the left) the same number of places that the exponent goes to by starting at the decimal point given in 9.81.

When you move to the left 3 decimal places, you should get 0.00981.

I hope this makes sense!

$0.00981$

#### Explanation:

This is the same as:$\frac{9.81}{10} ^ 3 \to \frac{9.81}{10 \times 10 \times 10}$

In stages, gradually dividing by the 10's until there is none left

$\frac{9.81}{10} ^ 3 = \frac{0.981}{10 \times 10}$

$\frac{9.81}{10} ^ 3 = \frac{0.0981}{10}$

$\frac{9.81}{10} ^ 3 = 0.00981$
