Hello! What is
3162277660.17 written in both scientific notation and standard notation? I am getting confused at the difference between the two. Thank you so much.
3162277660.17 - This is in "standard notation"
3.162277660.17 - put a decimal point in front of the first number, which is a "3"
Count the number of digits BETWEEN the two decimal points and you should get 9. This 9 is the exponent or power of 10. Then write the whole number like this: 3.16227766017 x 10^9. You remove the first decimal point. So, your number 3.16227766017 x 10^9 is now in "scientific notation"
