In scientific notation, a number is expressed as a product of any value between 0 and 1 and 10 to the 10th power. Scientific notation is commonly used when dealing with large quantities or numbers with many digits, because it shortens the notation. When adding or subtracting numbers in scientific notation, it should be made sure that the exponents are the same. Mathematical operations where we add and subtract in scientific notation problems are crucial for understanding of scientific notation and its functions.
