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"**
