Compare numbers in scientific notation involves evaluating two numbers expressed as `a×10^n` to determine which is greater or smaller. This process includes comparing the coefficients and comparing the exponents. Compare the values of the coefficients (the numbers before the "`x10`") to determine which number is larger or smaller. If the exponents are the same, the number with the larger coefficient is larger. If the exponents are different, the number with the larger exponent is larger.
