# How to write an exponential notation with positive exponents example

Which is the answer when you divide these two guys right there. We need to understand how to distribute, add, multiply and divide exponents in order to simplify expressions or manipulate equations that have exponents.

So it's going to be 7. Perform the same series of steps as above, except move the decimal point to the right.

For example, growth occurs in living organisms by the division of cells. Now, we just have to count the numbers behind the decimal point. The 3 in is called the exponent. It would be 6.

We have our 8. Now, I've done a lot of multiplication.

### How to convert numbers to scientific notation

Each of these is thousands. So I will count how many places the decimal point has to move to get from where it is now to where it needs to be: Then the power on 10 has to be — "eleven", because that's how many places the decimal point needs to be moved, and "negative", because I'm dealing with a SMALL number. Let's do 0. This is what we should expect for a small number. Warning: A negative on an exponent and a negative on a number mean two very different things! So it would be equivalent to a 1 followed by 12 0's. Remember that taking the square root is the same as raising the number to the one-half power.
