Exponents to Numbers Worksheets
How to Convert Values Between Standard and Exponential Form - There are different ways you can write numbers. When you are working with very large or very small numbers, and you write them exactly how they are, we call it the standard form. But there is another, easier way to write the numbers that are too small or too large. It involves exponents, and we call it the exponential form. A number written in standard form can be converted into exponential forms and vice versa. So, how do we proceed with the conversion between standard and exponential form? Consider a number being multiplied to itself multiple times; 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2. Its standard form is 32, and its exponential form is 25. It is that simple.
Any number to any power is just the number times itself a specified number of times. The number nx is n times itself x amount of times. Substitute 5 for n and 3 for x and you get 5 x 5 x 5. It is easy to make the mistake of simply multiplying 5 times 3.
