(a) Interpretation: If the power of 10 is positive, negative or zero exponents in the standard scientific notation of 0.08331 should be determined. Concept Introduction: Scientific notation for a number is written in such a way that large numbers are written in small decimal form which is then multiplied by the power of 10. For numbers less than 1, the power of 10 in scientific notation has negative exponent and for numbers greater than 1, the power is either zero or has positive exponent.
