Scientific notation is a common number notation used to express large and small numbers in the form \(x \cdot 10^y\), where \(1 \leq |x| < 10\) and \(y \in \mathbb Z\).[1] In general, the formulas for finding \(x\) and \(y\) are

\(x = \frac{N}{10^{\left\lfloor log_{10} |N|\right\rfloor}}\)


\(y = \left\lfloor log_{10} |N|\right\rfloor\).
