A number is expressed in the standard form if it is written as a power of ten. When a number is expressed in the standard form, it usually contains two parts: a decimal part that is a number between 1 and 10 and a part that expresses only powers of ten, as shown in the scheme below.

Y = A × 10^{n}

where 1 ≤ A < 10 and n = integer.

We can do with numbers expressed in the standard form all operations we do with ordinary numbers. However, in the addition and subtraction of numbers in standard form, there is a restriction: they must have the same power of ten, i.e. the same n. Therefore, first we do the necessary changes in any of the original numbers and after turning both of them to the same power of ten, then we can do the addition or subtraction, where only the corresponding parts A are added or subtracted, while the power of 10 does not change.

For example, if we have

3.21 × 10^{5} + 4.32 × 10^{3}

we express the second number as 0.0432 × 10^{5} and then, we add the numbers, i.e.

3.21 × 10^{5} + 0.0432 × 10^{5} = 3.2532 × 10^{5}

The general rule used in such conversions is that the number in the lowest power of 10 must fit the number that has the highest power of ten to avoid further operations in the decimal part.

Multiplication of numbers in the standard form is easier. The rule used in such an operation is "the decimal parts multiply, while indices of 10 add to each other." In symbols,

(A × 10^{m}) ∙ (B × 10^{n}) = (A ∙ B) × 10^{m + n}

For example,

(3 × 10^{5}) ∙ (5.43 × 10^{2})

= (3 ∙ 5.43) × 10^{5 + 2}

= 16.29 × 10^{7}

= 1.629 × 10^{8}

= (3 ∙ 5.43) × 10

= 16.29 × 10

= 1.629 × 10

A similar procedure is also used in the division of numbers written in the standard form. In such an operation, the decimal parts are divided while the power of ten is subtracted. In symbols,

For example,

= 2 × 10
