STANDARD FORM AND DECIMAL PLACES     20041115


This exercise is aimed to test your ability to switch between the forms of answers on your calculator by using mode or FSE depending on your calculator type, and particularly without re-doing the calculation. It also persuades you not to start every move by clearing the display. You should write how to do this on YOUR calculator in YOUR book.


Give two ‘answers’ to each of these calculations
                                 a)  3 significant figures in Standard Form  A
ND  b)  to 5 decimal places

Example:        

.                      7.1x 10³                              =   2.63x10-2                   =   0.02630
                2.7x105  


1.        7.12x 10³  
           2.77x10

2.       6.49x 1013   
           2.6x1015

3.       36 500  
         276 358

4.      0.715 x 0.064² 

5.      7.15x 10 -1     x 4.096x10 -3


6.      7.15x 109     x 4.1x10 -13


7.      2.3x 1013   x 4.7x 10 -4       
                 7.7x10 12

8.       3.2 x 10 26   x 2.03 x 10 -39

9.     2.05 x 1019 
        7.69 x 1021

10.     2.1x 10 7 x    3.2 x 10 -4      
                1.024x10³

11.   0.021² x  6 

12.       2.1 7  x 3.2 –4


Be careful to read what is wrtitten.
Write on the sheet only if you can be neat enough to make it fit…….
