**Lesson and Tricks on Multiplying and Dividing by Powers of 10**

- Multiplying by powers of 10, simply move the decimal to the right as the same number of exponents or as the number of zeros.

** ****Example:**

47 x 10² = 47 x 10 x 10 = 4700

5.4 x 10³ = 5.4 x 10 x 10 x 10 = 5400

- Dividing by powers of 10, simply move the decimal to the left as the same number of exponents or as the number of zeros.

** Example:**

47 ÷ 10² = 47 ÷ ( 10 x 10 ) = 0.47

5.4 ÷ 10³ = 5.4 ÷ ( 10 x 10 x 10 ) = 5.4 ÷ 1000= 0.0054
