# How do you write 2.92 x10 negative 1 exponent in standard form?

The -1 exponent is stating that the decimal needs to be moved one place to the left (essentially making the number smaller than how it appears).

The standard form would be shown as: **0.292**

If the exponent were to have been a positive 1, the decimal would move one place right, instead of left.

### How do you put numbers in standard form?

Standard form is a way of writing large numbers or very small number easily. For example, if we have 5000, we will write it as 5 * 103 in standard form. The exponent of 3 represents how many 0's there are in the number. An example of writing a very small number is .0005 We write it as 5 * 10-4 in standard form. The negative sign in the exponent tells us that the number…

### How do you write 8 times 10 exponent 1 plus 3 times 10 exponent negative 3 in standard form?

Convert each item to standard form before addition. To convert scientific form to standard form move the decimal point the number of digits given by the exponent, if positive to the right, if negative to the left; if the digits run out insert zeros. If no decimal point is visible it is "hiding" after the last digit. 8 x 10¹ = 80 3 × 10^-3 = 0.003 → 8 × 10¹ + 3 × 10^-3…

### What is the standard form for 56.34 million?

First, let's just get it into the form of (a number)*10(a power), not necessarily correct standard form. If we write out 1 million, it's 1,000,000. When we count up the zeros, we see this is 106 Thus we can write 56.34 * 106. But in standard form, the decimal one place from the left. For every place we move the decimal to the left, we must add a 1 from the exponent, and for every…

### Is a number that can be expressed using an exponent?

Every number can be expressed using an exponent. You select a base, b, which should be a positive real number. Suppose the number is x. If this number is negative, then its exponent form will have a negative sign before it. The absolute value of the number is converted to the exponent form by solving x = b^y where y is the exponent. However, you need to know about logarithms before you can do that…

### How do you convert numbers into standard form?

See the related link about Standard Form. Standard form involves moving the decimal point so that there is only one non-zero digit to the left of the decimal point, then multiplying by an appropriate power of ten. If you moved the decimal point to the left, then the exponent of ten will be positive. If you moved the decimal point to the right, then the exponent of ten will be negative. The value of the…
