# How do you write numerical values of expressions written in scientific notation?

Nov 2, 2014

If the power is positive, move the decimal point to the right, but if the power is negative, then move the decimal point to the left. Let us look at the following examples.

Examples

$1.2345 \times {10}^{3} = 1234.5$

$1.2345 \times {10}^{7} = 12345000$

$1.2345 \times {10}^{- 4} = 0.00012345$

I hope that this was helpful.
