there are no numbers/pictures.
1. by definition, scientific notation has the following form:
a is a number between 1 and 10 but does not include 10.
b an integer.
2. when you multiply 3.25 by 7.8 the result is 25.35 and when you multiply by , you obtain , but to write ree thsult in scientific notation, the decimal point must be after the first digit. therefore, you must move the decimal point one place to the left. so, the exponent changes from 9 to 10:
positive slope > increasing line
negative slope > decreasing line
slope of the line tell us the steepness of the line and the sign of the slope tells us whether the line is increasing or decreasing
when the sign of the slope is positive then the line is increasing
when the sign of the slope is negative then the line is decreasing
