Concept introduction: Decimal notation is a system where numbers, expressed in scientific notation are written in the form of large or small numbers containing many zeros. Scientific notations are used to express a large number in a compact form. Scientific notation consists of two parts, a decimal part (a number between 1 to 10) and an exponential part (10 raised to an exponent).Start your trial now! First week only $4.99!*arrow_forward*
