Using
the rules we learned from our lessons Now let's use those rules and do some ordering. Example 1: Put in order from least to greatest:
Solution: First we want to write these numbers in standard form.
We
can now use our numbers in standard form to order. 8, 000 8, 910 81, 900 89, 000
We will now write our list in the original form (scientific notation).
Solution: Again we want to put our numbers in standard form.
We can now use our numbers in standard form to order. The correct order would be: 0.017 0.0107 0.00107 0.000017 We will now write our list in the original form (scientific notation).
By using our rules for ordering decimal numbers and whole numbers, combined with our rules for scientific notation, we can now order numbers in scientific notation form!
