# Change Number to Standard Notation

How to change a number to standard notation: 2 examples and their solutions.

## Example7.95 × 10^{6} in Standard Notation

Solution

Solution (Detail)

Write the front part: 7.95.

Scientific Notation - Definition

The power part is 10^{6}.

The exponent of 10 is plus: 6.

Then, to make the front part greater than 10,

move the decimal point

6 digits to the right.

And fill the zeros [0000]

in the blank digits.

Then the given number is 7950000.

So 7950000 is the answer.

## Example8.6 × 10^{-4} in Standard Notation

Solution

Solution (Detail)

Write the front part: 8.6.

The power part is 10^{-4}.

The exponent of 10 is minus: -4.

Then, to make the front part less than 1,

move the decimal point

4 digits to the left.

And fill the zeros [0.000]

in the blank digits.

Then the given number is 0.00086.

So 0.00086 is the answer.
