Why do you add 1 to each exponent after a number is factorized to determine the number of positive factors for any given number?

Suppose you have a prime factor with an exponent of n. Then that prime factor can appear 0, 1, 2, ... , n times in a compound factor: that is, there are (n+1) different exponents that it can take.

What are the two factors of scientific notation?
Not sure about "factors", but the two elements are the mantissa and the exponent. Scientific notation is a way of representing numbers, usually very large or very small, in the form a*10^b where 1 <= |a| < 10 is a decimal number and b is an integer (negative or positive). a is called the mantissa and b is called the exponent.
