**Changing**From Fractions**to Decimals**.**To**change a fraction**to**a**decimal**, we count the**number**of zeros**in**the denominator. This**number**is the**number**of digits**to**the right of the**decimal**place.- Examples. 3 59 5. = 0.3 , = 0.59, = 0.005. 10 100 1,000. 17 8. 4 = 4.17 , 93 = 93.008. 100 1000.

**decimal**form of.

Just so, how do you convert to ordinary notation?

**How to Convert a Number to Scientific Notation**

- Move the decimal point in your number until there is only one non-zero digit to the left of the decimal point.
- Count how many places you moved the decimal point.
- If you moved the decimal to the left b is positive.

Furthermore, what is a decimal notation? **Decimal notation** is simply a form of a number using a **decimal** point. An example is 0.7 . **Decimals** use the base ten. Thus, they have tenths, hundredths, thousandths, ten thousandths, etc. places.

Then, how do you convert a decimal to a power?

To **convert** to scientific notation, start by moving the **decimal** place **in the** number until you have a coefficient between 1 and 10; here it is 3.45. The number of places to the left that you had to move the **decimal** point is the exponent. Here, we had to move the **decimal** 4 places to the right, so the exponent is -4.

How many significant figures does 100 have?

Scientific Notation

(1) | 1000 | 1x10^{3} -- so one sig fig |
---|---|---|

(2) | 0.001 | 1x10^{-}^{3} -- so one sig fig |

(3) | 100. | 1.00x10^{2} -- so three sig figs |

(4) | 0.00100 | 1.00x10^{-}^{3} -- so three sig figs |

(5) | 100 (with two sig figs) | 1.0x10^{2} -- so two sig figs |
