# Q: How is the number 313,243,432 written in Scientific Notation?

^{8}

A: 3.13243432 x 10^{8}

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 313,243,432 is written in scientific notation.

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

- Original Number: 313,243,432
- New Number: 3.13243432

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

New Number: | 3 | . | 1 | 3 | 2 | 4 | 3 | 4 | 3 | 2 |

Decimal Count: | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 |

There are **8** 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** = 3.13243432

**b** = 8

Now the whole thing:

**3.13243432 x 10 ^{8}**

Check your work:

10^{8} = 100,000,000 x 3.13243432 = **313,243,432**

313,243,430 | 313,243,431 | 313,243,433 | 313,243,434 |

3.1324343 x 10^{8} | 3.13243431 x 10^{8} | 3.13243433 x 10^{8} | 3.13243434 x 10^{8} |
