. Express the following numbers in the standard form


(i) 0.0000000000085

(ii) 0.00000000000942

(iii) 6020000000000000

(iv) 0.00000000837

(v) 31860000000

Best Answer

Explanation:

  • The standard form of the numbers is in the form a.bcd....z10
  • If we shift decimal to the right then the power of 10 will be positive.
  • If we shift decimal to the left then the power of 10 will be negative.
  • The power of 10 will be equal to the number of places the decimal is shifted.

(i) 0.0000000000085=8.510-12

(ii) 0.00000000000942=9.4210-12

(iii) 6020000000000000=6.021015

(iv) 0.00000000837=8.3710-9

(v) 31860000000=3.1861010

Final Answer:

Hence, the standard form of the given numbers are as follows:

(i) 0.0000000000085=8.510-12

(ii) 0.00000000000942=9.4210-12

(iii) 6020000000000000=6.021015

(iv)  0.00000000837=8.3710-9

(v) 31860000000=3.1861010
