# Exponents and Powers G8

Consider a number 45,00,00,000. Don’t you think it’s way too long to write or say? But what if we tell you a simpler way to write this? This number, mathematically, can be written as 4.5*10^8, and we read ‘10^8’ as ‘10 raised to the power 8’. But how does this form of expression come into existence? And how did we learn to write in such a way? All of these explained exclusively in the of ‘Exponents and Powers’. You can easily express any huge number in its simplest form using this concept. Now tell us, what can be the exponential form of a smallest number 0.00045? Baffled? Let us find the answer in this chapter!
