standard form is a way of writing large or small numbers easily. see below for example

#### Explanation:

Write $81 900 000 000 000$ in standard form: 81 900 000 000 000 = 8.19 × 10^13 the $13$ means that the decimal point was moved $13$ times and the $10$ b/c it's a zero and you always use that so hence why the ${10}^{13}$
