• 25 INDICES, STANDARD FORM AND SURDS

610

In this chapter you will: work out the value of an expression with zero,

negative or fractional indices convert between standard form and ordinary numbers calculate with numbers in standard form manipulate surds make estimates to calculations using numbers in

standard form.

The photo shows a male Escheria coli bacteria. You may have heard of e-coli. These bacteria are commonly known in relation to food poisoning as they can cause serious illness. Each bacterium is about a millionth of a metre long. That can be written as 0.000001m, or in standard form as 1 × 106m long. Standard form allows us to write both very large and very small numbers in a more useful form.

Objectives Before you start

You need to be able to: use the index laws round numbers to one signifi cant fi gure.

25.1 Using zero and negative powers

You know that n0  1 when n ≠ 0. You know the meaning of negative indices.

Objectives

If you are x metres from a live band, the volume of sound they are producing is directly proportional to x2. This means that if you halve your distance to the band, the music will get four times as loud.

To work out the reciprocal of a fraction, turn the fraction upside down. Square the number on the top and the number on the bo� om of the fraction.

Examiner’s Tip

Do not change the fraction to a decimal. It is much easier to square the numbers in a fraction than it is to square a decimal.

25.2 Using standard form

You can convert ordinary numbers into standard form. You can convert numbers in standard form into

ordinary numbers. You can calculate with numbers in standard form You can convert to standard form to make sensible

estimates for calculations.

Objectives

Astronomers use standard form to record large measurements. The Sun’s diameter is about 1.392  106 km. Biologists working with micro- organisms sometimes use standard form to record their very small sizes, like 2.1  104 cm.

Why do this?

1. Work out a 103 b 10–2

2. Write 10 000 as a power of 10. 3. Work out 2.35  10 000.

Standard form is used to represent very large (or very small) numbers. A number is in standard form when it is in the form a  10n where 1  a  10 and n is an integer.

To use standard form you need to know how to write powers of ten in index form. 10  101 100  10  10  102 1000  10  10  10  103

A number in standard form looks like this. 6.7  104

This part is written as a This part is written as a number between 1 and 10. power of 10.

These numbers are all in standard form – 4.5  102, 9  108, 1.2657  106. These numbers are not in standard form – 67  109, 0.087  103 – because the fi rst number is not between

1 and 10. It is often easier to multiply and divide very large or very small numbers, or estimate a calculation if the numbers

are written in standard form. To input numbers in standard form into your calculator, use the 10 or EXP key.
