Change 3.46 times 10 to the power of four to a basic numeral. Since the index of 10 is positive the decimal point will move to the right. The power of four means that the decimal point will move four places to the right, therefore some zeros will need to be added to the number to fill the vacant places. How many zeros will be required? Did you say two? That’s correct. We have four and a six but two zeros are needed to cater for the movement of four decimal places. So our answer for this question is that the basic numeral is 34,600.
