in reality 95 = 95.0 so if you move the decimal place over 1 to the left you get
9.5 x 10^1
= 9.5 x (10)
= 95
if you move it twice to the left you get .95 x 10^2
.95 x 10^2
= .95 x (10 x 10)
= .95 x 100
= 95
So your answer would be .95 x 10^2
so scientific notation would just be exponents on the ten multiplying it by another number.
i.e.
65 = 65.00
= 6.5 x 10^1 > 6.5 x (10)
= .65 x 10^2 > .65 x (100)
