  • The Andromeda Galaxy(closest to the Milky way)contains at least200,000,000,000 stars.Why Use Scientific Notation?2 x 1011
  • A) 15,010 =B) 30,660,000,000 =Standard form to Scientific Notation80,600 = 8.06 x 104410x501.11010066.3 x
  • How do you change thenumber back fromscientific notation intostandard form?You just do the opposite!The exponent tells you whichdirection to move your decimalto get it back where it was.Ex. 4.5 x 10 =5450,000
