Standard Form − Very Large Numbers

Very large numbers can be written in standard form

  Number Standard Form
Ten 10 101
One hundred 100 102
One thousand 1,000 103
Ten thousand 10,000 104
One hundred thousand 100,000 105
One million 1,000,000 106
Ten million 10,000,000 107
One hundred million 100,000,000 108
One billion 1,000,000,000 109
Ten billion 10,000,000,000 1010

Notice − in each of the above examples the value in the power e.g. the 3 in 103 matches the number of zeroes 1,000 in the number column

Important − in Standard Form the number we multiply by 10 is always between 1 and 10.
