" e " means " × 10n " where " n " is the number that comes after the " e ".

 

For example:

 

3.2e5 = 3.2 × 105 = 3.2 × 100,000 = 320,000

 

and

 

4.53e-2 = 4.53 × 10-2 = 0.0453

 

It probably stands for "exponent" or something like that..I don't really know. There is also an e that is a special number like pi. It doesn't "do" anything though, it's just a number.
