# Q: How is the number 1 written in Scientific Notation?

^{0}

A: 1 x 10^{0}

The purpose of scientific notation is for scientists to write very large, or very small, numbers with ease.

Calculating scientific notation for a positive integer is simple, as it always follows this notation:

**a x 10 ^{b}**

Follow the steps below to see how 1 is written in scientific notation.

To find **a**, take the number and move a decimal place to the right one position.

- Original Number: 1
- New Number: 1.

Now, to find **b**, count how many places to the right of the decimal.

New Number: | 1 | . |

Decimal Count: |

There are **0** places to the right of the decimal place.

Building upon what we know above, we can now reconstruct the number into scientific notation.

Remember, the notation is: **a x 10 ^{b}**

**a** = 1 (Please notice any zeroes on the end have been removed)

**b** = 0

Now the whole thing:

**1 x 10 ^{0}**

Check your work:

10^{0} = 1 x 1 = **1**
