## Teaching Multiplying and dividing in scientific notation (word problems) easily:

Multiplying and dividing numbers expressed as scientific notation includes a few easy steps. However, it is different from standard multiplication and division.

Steps to multiply scientific notation:

In this, coefficient and exponential parts are solved separately.

- First, we need to multiply the coefficients, whether integer or decimal.
- After this, we need to multiply the exponential parts (keeping the base 10 and adding its powers).
- Lastly, merge the solution with the multiplication sign and simplify them.

### Steps to multiply scientific notation:

Like multiplication, the division also requires solving coefficient and exponential parts separately.

- First, we need to divide the coefficients, whether integer or decimal.
- Post this, we need to divide the exponential parts (keeping the base 10 and subtracting its powers).
- Lastly, merge the solution with the multiplication sign and simplify them.
