What is 965,000,000,000,000 in scientific notation?
Thank goodness for scientific notation!
Imagine having to work with numbers like this without a short and easy way to write these very big or very small numbers!
'Scientific notation uses the powers of 10.
Decide which power of 10 we are working with first by counting the number of place holders AFTER the first digit.
Notice that there is always just ONE digit before the decimal point.
