^{n}where m and n are constants, because it looks indistinguishable from m times x times 10 to the n power. Alternatively it looks like the cross product of m and 10^n, which makes little sense because m and n are not vectors. Calculators and programs tend to display numbers in "calculator notation" me

^{n}or mE

^{n}, which looks like m times Euler's constant to the n power or m times a variable E to the n.

My question is aside from m(10

^{n}) which I have never seen anyone write it as, is there an accepted way of writing values in scientific notation that doesn't require the use of symbols or letters that can or do already mean something?
