What is Meant by the Dividing Scientific Notation?
In mathematics and science, scientific notation is a comfortable method of writing very small and large numbers. The scientific notation is usually expressed in the standard form a × 10n, where “a” is a non zero number between 1 and 10 and the “n” is the number which depends on the number of digits up to the decimal value. Consider a very large number, say 540,000,000. This number can be simply expressed in the scientific notation. Thus, 540,000,000 is written as 5.4× 108. If a number with exponents, it is easier to multiply and divide the number. Since the scientific notation has 10n, the division of two scientific notations is simpler. The procedure to perform the scientific notation is as follows:
- Divide the coefficients of the scientific notation (i.e., the value of a)
- Subtract the exponents
- Finally, convert the result in the scientific notation form
Solved Example on Dividing Scientific Notation
Divide 3.4 × 104 by 2.9× 102
Given that, (3.4 × 104 )/ (2.9× 102)
First, divide the value of a
(i.e.,) 3.4/2.9 = 1.172
Now, subtract the exponents, we get
104-2 = 102
Now, write the expression in the scientific notation format
(3.4 × 104)/ (2.9× 102) = 1.172× 102
Hence, the division of (3.4 × 104 ) by (2.9× 102) is 1.172× 102
