# What is a tea chart?

a "T" chart is a chart that is basically shaped like a "T". On either side there can be two different topics

ex: on one side of the "T" there could be muffins and on the other side there could be cakes and you could compare the differences and/or similarities or maybe even likes and dislikes about the two.

# What is the scientific notation of 93 million?

Something that is a million usually starts off 6 digits higher. For instance, 93 million is expressed as 93 * 106. Finally, move a decimal place to the left to get:

9.3 x 107

# What is 0.0000005 in scientific notation?

Move 7 decimal places from the starting point to get:

5.0 x 10-7

Note that the exponent of base 10 is negative. That is because the leading nonzero digit takes place after the original decimal place.

# What is the scientific notation for 0.0000000007?

Move 10 decimal places to the right to get:

7 x 10-10

The exponent is negative since the leading nonzero digit takes place 10 decimal places on the right of the decimal places

# What is 4491 in standard scientific notation?

Note that 4491 is interpreted as 4491.0. Then, move 3 decimal places to the left from the starting point. Therefore, you should get 4.491 x 10³ in scientific notation.

# What is 52.000 in scientific notation?

5.2 x 10^1 because in scientific notation you only have one digit before the decimal and the rest fall after..so if you move the decimal to the left the notation number will be positive the right would be negative notation. For example .00058 would be 5.8 x 10^ -4

# Why would you use scientific notation?

Scientific notation is a way of writing really huge, or really tiny, numbers that saves time and space and ink, etc. For example, the World Book Encyclopedia lists the Earth's mass as

6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kilograms.

Why write such an unwieldy number when you can, instead, write

6.0 x 1024 kg.

The classical radius of an electron is

0.0000000000000028179 meters.

Again, why write such a space wasting number when you can write it like so:

2.8179 x 10-15m

# How do you multiple using scientific notation?

You multiply the mantissas, and add the exponents. After that, you may wish to normalize.

Example: 2x105 x 6x106 = 12 x 1011. Notice that I multiplied 2 x 6 to obtain 12, and that I added 5 + 6 to obtain the new exponent, 11. You may wish to normalize this result to 1.2 x 1012.

# What is 0.0000087 in scientific notation?

Scientific notation needs to be written as 5.4x104

The lead number needs to be greater than 1, but less than ten. In this case, it is 5.4. The exponent tells me how many times I need to shift my decimal point to get my big, or in your case, a small number. For my example, I would have 54,000

For yours, it is a small number. Shift the decimal point 6 spots to the right, so you have 8.7, which is between 1 and ten. 8.7x10-6 would be correct.
