2.00e+00 = 2.00x1000

1.00e+01 = 1.00x1001

3.00e-02 = 3.00x10-02

And so on.

This notation is an abbreviated form of scientific notation. The number that appears before E is the mantissa, and is normally in the range 1.0 through 9.999... The number after E is the exponent on 10 (E stands for exponent, where it is implied that it is the exponent on 10).
