Scientific notation is the expression of a number based on the largest exponent of 10 for its value, where the form is a decimal number A x 10n.
Steps in scientific notation 1. Identify the location of the decimal point. 2. Move the decimal point, stop moving after 1st none zero digit, stop moving the non zero digit, 3. Identify the multiplying factor 4. Identify the exponent

Scientific Notation format for millirem One millirem is 1 x 10-3 rem, which can also be written as 1E-3 rem. Note that 1 x 10-3 is not the same as 1.0 x 10-3 which is not the same as 1.00 x 10-3. Those numbers have one, two, and three significant digits, respectively. That is, the second number…
