  1. Changing a number to scientific
    notation gives you a number less than 10 multiplied by a power of 10:

    3500 = 3.5*10^3
    3.5 is less than 10; the exponent(3)
    means that moving the decimal 3 places
    to the right restores the number to standard form.

    0.0035 = 3.5*10^-3.
    The negative exponent means that moving
    the decimal 3 places to the left will
    restore the number to standard form.

    I hope this will help.
