# Mathematical notation: 2.00 E + 00 and 1.00 E + 01 ?

• questions_uk
In summary, "2.00 E + 00" is a representation of a number in scientific notation, where the "E" stands for "exponent" and the "+ 00" indicates that the exponent is 0. This means that the number remains the same and is multiplied by 1. Scientific notation is used in mathematical notation to simplify large or small numbers, and to convert "2.00 E + 00" to standard notation, the decimal point does not need to be moved. The "+ 00" in "2.00 E + 00" is necessary to show that the exponent has no effect on the value of the number.

Hey. What do these numbers represent in standard form?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

You mean in this form...

2.00,10.0

?

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).

## What does "2.00 E + 00" mean in mathematical notation?

"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.

## How is "1.00 E + 01" different from "2.00 E + 00" in mathematical notation?

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".

## Why is scientific notation used in mathematical notation?

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.

## How can I convert "2.00 E + 00" to standard notation?

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.

## What is the purpose of the "+ 00" in "2.00 E + 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.
