 Question 181896: Write the following numbers in scientific notation: Number in standard notation Number in scientific notation 1,990,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 48,500 3,756 980 72 6.5 0.432 0.0999 0.005 0.00012 0.00000000000000000000000000000091093897 Insight: The following are simplified procedures for writing a number in scientific notation and reverse: To Write a Number in Scientific Notation 1. Move the decimal point in the original number to the right or left until you obtain a number greater than or equal to 1 and less than 10. 2. Count the number of places you have moved the decimal point to obtain the number in step 1. If the decimal point was moved to the left, the count is to be considered positive. If the decimal point was moved to the right, the count is to be considered negative. 3. Multiply the number obtained in step 1 by 10 raised to the count found in step 2. (Note that the count determined in step 2 is the exponent on the base 10.) Examples: - Males have up to 5,800,000 red blood cells per cubic millimeter of blood, or 5,800,000 = - The probability of winning a lottery may be 0.0000018, or 0.0000018 = To Convert a Number given in Scientific Notation to Decimal Notation 1. Observe the exponent on the 10 2. a) If the exponent is positive, move the decimal point in the number to the right the same number of places as the exponent. Adding zeros to the number might be necessary. b) If the exponent is negative, move the decimal point in the number to the left the same number of places as the exponent. Adding zeros might be necessary. Examples: - The age of the earth is estimated to be years = 4,600,000,000 years - The average grain size in siltstone is = 0.00135 Click here to see answer by Alan3354(30959)

 Question 181893: The Great Galaxy in Andromeda (also known as the Andromeda Galaxy or M31) is about 2.5 million light years from Earth.
