Scientific notation tool
The only tool provided by numeric entry modules is the option for writing an answer in scientific notation. This tool works like a scientific calculator. You can select the tool, which inserts "×10" and allows you to enter the superscript. You can also type "e", "*", or "x", which each automatically insert "×10". Note: Do not enter an equation for the answer (e.g. 1×10^5.5). Find the final answer first, and then enter it in either standard or scientific notation.
