Multiply by Powers of 10

We will Multiply by a Power of 10 greater than 1.

Examples



1). 5.98 X 10,000

     5.98 X 10,000: 10,000 has 4 zeros so we need to move the decimal point 4 places to the right.

                  = 59,800

We will multiply by a Power of 10 less than 1.

2). 93.6 X 0.1

   

     93.6 X 0.1: 0.1 has one place after the decimal point so we need to move the decimal point one place to the left.

               = 9.36

Notice when you multiply by a power of 10 greater than 1 it makes the product bigger:

  Decimal


Power of 10
  Product
  2.72   x      1            
  2.72
  2.72   x      10
  27.2
  2.72   x      100
  272
  2.72   x      1000
  2,720
  2.72   x      10,000

  27,200





0.1= 1/10, 0.01= 1/100, 0.001= 1/1000

Notice that when you multiply by a power of 10 less than one, it makes the product smaller:

  Decimal   Power of 10
  Product
  7.84   x    0.1
  0.784
  7.84   x    0.01
  0.0784
  7.84   x    0.001
  0.00784
