B. 1.2 x
Scientific notation is a way of writing very large or very small numbers. A number is written in scientific notation when a number between 1 and 10 is multiplied by a power of 10. For example, 650,000,000 can be written in scientific notation as 6.5 ✕ 10^8. Or, in this case it's the opposite since we have a negative number. Since it's a decimal it's multiplied by 10 still but the exponent is negative. All we need to do to find what the exponent would be in this case is to count the number of zeros before the "12." There are 4 zeros before the 12. So your exponent would be -4. Now all we need to do is write out "equation" per say.
1.2 x 10^-4
Hope this helps and have a nice day!
the following expressions is 0.00012 , write it in scientific notation
In scientific notation we put the decimal point after the first number
to get the decimal point after 1, we move 4 units to the right
To move 4 units to the right , we put
