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?

  • math((PLEASE HELP!)) -

    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 :)
