what is standard form?

THE SIMPLIFIED FORM OF A FRACTION IS CALLED ITS STANDARD FORM

## Standard Form of a Decimal Number

In Britain this is another name for Scientific Notation, where you write down a number this way:

In this example, 5326.6 is written as 5.3266 × 10, because 5326.6 = 5.3266 × 1000 = 5326.6 × 10^{3}^{3} |

In other Countries it just means "not in expanded form":

561 | 500 + 60 + 1 |

Standard Form | Expanded Form |
