#### Storyboard Text

• Scientific Notation
• Scientific notations are commonly used as replacers for very big numbers, this is done in order to make the usage of big numbers easier.
• 9,972,778
• 9.972778 x10 ^6
• 2,190,978
• One example of a number that you woul want to make simpler is 2,190,978. Before making this into a scientific notation you have to consider that in scientific notation numbers cant be smaller than 1 or bigger than 10.
• 2.190978
• To convert this number you have to move the decimal to the left for the number to be smaller than 10 but bigger than 1. This would give us 2.190978
• After you have this number you have to add (x 10) and then the number of times you moved it to the left as a power.
• 2.190978 x10 ^6
• Now that you know how to do this go out and try it by yourself!
