expressing numbers or algebraic expressions with exponents or powers; for example, expressed in exponential notation 3 X 10^+ 4 X 10^ + 5 is 345
A symbolic way of showing how many times a number or variable is used as a factor. In the notation 5 3, the exponent 3 shows that 5 is a factor used three times; that is 5 3 = 5 x 5 x 5 =125.
(4) A shorthand way of representing repeated multiplication of the same number. In the example below the small raised 3, called the exponent, indicates how many times the number 2, called the base, is used as a factor. Example: 23 is exponential notation for 2 x 2 x 2.
A shorthand way of representing repeated multiplication of the same factor. For example, 2 is exponential notation for 2 ** The small, raised 3, called the exponent, indicates how many times the number 2, called the base, is used as a factor.
The notation used to show that an expression is being raised to a power.
expresses a number in the form N 3 10M; a convenient method for representing a very large or very small number and for easily indicating the number of significant figures.
"1.23e4" means "1.23 times 10 to the fourth power" or 12,300; "5.67e-8" means "5.67 divided by 10 to the eighth power" or 0.0000000567. To change a number in exponential notation into one that makes sense, all you have to do is move the decimal point the last number of places to the right.
A mathematical tool used to shorten or condense repeated multiplication.
an expression that includes a quantity being raised to a power.
