Hey. What do these numbers represent in standard form?
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks.

"2.00 E + 00" is a way of writing a number in scientific notation. The "E" stands for "exponent" and represents the number of places the decimal point has been moved. In this case, the decimal point has not been moved at all, so the number remains the same. The "+ 00" indicates that the exponent is 0, which means the number is multiplied by 10 to the power of 0, or simply 1.
The only difference between "1.00 E + 01" and "2.00 E + 00" is the exponent. In "1.00 E + 01", the exponent is 1, which means the decimal point has been moved one place to the right. This makes the number 10 times larger than "2.00 E + 00".
Scientific notation is used in mathematical notation to represent very large or very small numbers in a more concise and readable format. It allows us to easily work with numbers that have many digits and makes calculations and comparisons simpler.
To convert "2.00 E + 00" to standard notation, simply move the decimal point to the right or left based on the value of the exponent. In this case, since the exponent is 0, the decimal point does not need to be moved, so the standard notation remains the same: 2.00.
The "+ 00" in "2.00 E + 00" indicates that the exponent is 0, which means the number is multiplied by 10 to the power of 0, or simply 1. This is necessary in scientific notation to show that there is no change in the value of the number due to the exponent.
