I do not understand the process of standard form
could someone please tell me how to write:
64000 in standard form
64 x 10^(-7) in standard form
and a little explanation if possible because i cannot get my head around it
The last term on the right would in this case be standard form (you may or may not want to lose the trialling zeros depending on if they are significant or not)
In the second case you want to move the decimal point one place to the left which increases the power of by to give .
