A number written in scientific notation is doubled. Explain why the exponent of 10 may or may not change.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:46 pm ad1c9bdddf
Well, it depends on the number. In general let's assume that the number is as follow:
a*10^b and we know that in scientific notation "a" should be a real number such that -10< a <10. In other words, "a" is number with single non zero digit to the left of the decimal point. Of course "b" is a whole ...
This explains what happens to a number in scientific notation that is doubled.
