Definition of b m/n For all positive integers m and n such that m>n is in simplest form, and for all real numbers b for which b1>n is a real number, b m>n = (b1>n ) m = (b m )1>n Because bm>n is defined as (b1>n)m and as (bm)1>n, we can evaluate expressions such as 8 in more than one way. For example, because 81>3 is a real number, 84>3 can be evaluated in either of the following ways. 4>3 84>3 = (81>3)4 = 24 = 16 84>3 = (84)1>3 = 40961>3 = 16 Of the two methods, the bm>n = (b1>n)m method is usually easier to apply, provided you can evaluate b1>n.

That is, if the exponent is positive, move the decimal point to the right the same number of places as the exponent. 5 * 105 = 350,000 m 5 places If the exponent is negative, move the decimal point to the left the same number of places as the absolute value of the exponent. 1 * 106 orchid seeds weigh 1 ounce. ■ Computer scientists measure an operation in nanoseconds. 7 * 109 years to travel from one end of the universe to the other. ■ m Math Matters 8 places Most calculators display very large and very small numbers in scientific notation.
