Subtract them.

Same.

1 With addition change the scientific notation back to 'normal numbers' and then add accordingly 2 With subtraction change the scientific back to 'normal numbers' and then subtract accordingly 3 With division subtract the exponents and divide the decimals 4 With multiplication add the exponents and multiply the decimals 5 Note that if changes occur below 1 or greater than 9 in the decimal element of the scientific notation then appropriate adjustments must be made

Scientific notation is a way to express very large or very small numbers. For very large exponent is positive; for very small exponent is negative. For example, 1,000,000 is 1 x 10 to the plus 6 exponent; 0.000001 is 1 x 10 to the negative 6 exponent

You subtract the exponent of the divisor from that of the dividend.

Yes, it does.

Only if the numbers to be converted into scientific notation are the same otherwise the exponents can vary according to the size the numbers.

In scientific notation, you use exponents divisible by 3. For example, 12,750 is 12.75 Ã— 10Â³ instead of 1.275 Ã— 10â´.

It is: 9.3*10^7 in scientific notation

yes its really important

Yes. Here is your answer:123.4 in Scientific Notation = 1.234 x 102654.321 in Scientific Notation = 6.54321 x 102

Because scientific notation is expressed in exponents of 10 as for example 13,000,000 is 1.3*10^7 in scientific notation

4,500 can be written as 4.50 × 103 in scientific notation.
