Study this problem on equivalent power of 10, then continue.

.000001 = _________

Rule:

To express a decimal as a

whole number times the power

of 10, move the decimal point

to the RIGHT, count the

number of places to the

original point, and use this

count as a NEGATIVE exponent

(or power) of 10.

Solution:

Move the decimal point 6

places to the RIGHT; the

exponent is a NEGATIVE 6.

Thus:

.000001 = 1 X 10-6 = 10-6
