1.3 billion may be written in numbers using a method known as scientific notation. Scientific notation is a method that is used to write very small and very big numbers in a form which is compact and nice. The method involves a series of steps through which you will be able to expertly break or in other words write 1.3 billion in words through a way which is fast and easy to understand. Let us take the steps on how you can write 1.3 billion in numbers.
What are the Steps Involved?
Scientific notation is a method that is used to write very small and very big numbers. In other words, when a given when it is written in scientific notation is illustrated as number, m, having multiplied by a 10 raised to a power number, n, and is done as follows:
M is referred to as the number part in the scientific notation. This number part is then multiplied by a 10 which is raised to a certain number, n. Note that the number, n, is a given integer.
The process of writing in a given number, whether it is the biggest number or this is the smallest number, using scientific notation involves a number of clearly indicated steps which will guide as well as help you break or write the number you intend to write in figures. The following is a list of the most important steps you are supposed to take when writing that given number in scientific notation include.
•The very first step you are supposed take in Scientific notation is to get the decimal place or point in the given number.
Put the decimal place or point immediately after the number which is not a zero. Make sure you locate the exact point where the decimal place is supposed to be put. The number which you will get after putting the decimal point will form the, m, or the number part in scientific notation.
• When moving your decimal place from its original place, make sure you count the number of places you have moved this decimal place. The figure that you will get after counting the total places you have moved the decimal point will for the number, n, in scientific notation. Also make sure you identify the direction on which you have had the decimal place moved, be keen to notice if you have moved the decimal to your right or you have moved the decimal to your left for you to be able to get the correct final decimal location.
in the event you have had your decimal place or point moved to your left, then note that you will be required to have the 10 raised by power n in the scientific notation.
In the event you have had you decimal moved from it's original place to your right, then note that you will be needed to have the 10 raised by power -n in the scientific notation.
When all this is clear, you can the put the above steps in to practice and you will be able to write 1.3 billion in numbers.
