Exponents to Numbers Worksheets
How to Convert Exponents to Numbers  The proper format for scientific notation is a x 10^{b} where a is a number or decimal number such that the absolute value of a is greater than or equal to one and less than ten or, 1 ≤ a < 10. b is the power of 10 required so that the scientific notation is mathematically equivalent to the original number. 1. Move the decimal point in your number until there is only one nonzero digit to the left of the decimal point. The resulting decimal number is a. 2. Count how many places you moved the decimal point. This number is b. 3. If you moved the decimal to the left b is positive. If you moved the decimal to the right b is negative. If you did not need to move the decimal b = 0. 4. Write your scientific notation number as a x 10^{b} and read it as "a times 10 to the power of b." 5. Remove trailing 0's only if they were originally to the left of the decimal point.

Basic Lesson
Demonstrates how to evaluate exponents in number sets. Also includes practice problems. Exponential notation is used when the number is multiplied repeatedly. The number being multiplied is called the base and the exponent tells how many times the base is multiplied by itself.

An exponent or power is a superscripted number used to indicate
repeated multiplication. What is the largest number you can write using
three digits? 999? No.
