# Standard Form: Conversion

## Converting Normal Numbers to Standard Form

Example 1 In this example, the decimal is 3.45 and there are 9 digits after the imaginary decimal point so the power will be 9.
Example 2 In this example, the decimal is 4.9 and there are 8 digits after the imaginary decimal point so the power will be 8.
Example 1 In this example, the first non 0 digit after the decimal point is 3 so the decimal becomes 3.75. There are 6 digits between the original and the new decimal point so the power is -6.
Example 2 In this example, the first non 0 digit after the decimal point is 8 so the decimal becomes 8.92 There are 7 digits between the original and the new decimal point so the power is -7.
