If two numbers are written in scientific notation. how can you tell which number is greater?

Where on a number line does the value of a positive number in scientific notation with a negative exponent lie?

The number with the greater coefficient and/or exponent is the greater number. n x 10^E where "n" is the coefficient, and "E" is the exponent.

examples: 1.23 x 10^21 > 1.23 x 10^20

Between zero and one

Hope this helps :)
