**form**(scientific notation) is a way to write very large or very small numbers in a more

**compact form**. It has two parts: A number, usually in the range 0 - 10, called the coefficient.

Likewise, what does form mean in math?

Standard **form** is a way of writing down very large or very small numbers easily. 10^{3} = 1000, so 4 × 10^{3} = 4000 . So 4000 can be written as 4 × 10³ . This idea can be used to write even larger numbers down easily in standard **form**.

**Expanded form**or

**expanded**notation is a way of writing numbers to see the

**math**value of individual digits. When numbers are separated into individual place values and decimal places they can also

**form**a

**mathematical**expression. 5,325 in

**expanded**notation

**form**is 5,000 + 300 + 20 + 5 = 5,325.

Subsequently, one may also ask, what is compact or standard form?

**Standard form** is a way of writing large numbers to make them more **compact**, for example. Instead of writing: 197,000,000.

The **decimal** part of a **decimal** represents a fraction. The **standard form** of a **decimal** number shows the **decimal** number written in figures. As an example, two tenth is written as 0.2 in **standard form**. Example: Write thirty-five and seven hundred eighty-two thousandths in **standard form**.
