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?

(1) 1000 1x103 -- so one sig fig
(2) 0.001 1x10-3 -- so one sig fig
(3) 100. 1.00x102 -- so three sig figs
(4) 0.00100 1.00x10-3 -- so three sig figs
