## Standard Form of a Decimal Number

In **Britain** this is another name for Scientific Notation, where you write down a number this way:

In this example, 5326.6 is written as **5.3266 × 103**,

because 5326.6 = 5.3266 × 1000 = 5.3266 × 103

In **other countries** it means "not in expanded form" (see Composing and Decomposing Numbers):

561 | 500 + 60 + 1 |

Standard Form | Expanded Form |

## Standard Form of an Equation

The "Standard Form" of an equation is:

*(some expression)* = 0

In other words, "= 0" is on the right, and everything else is on the left.

### Example: Put x2 = 7 into Standard Form

Answer:

x2 − 7 = 0

## Standard Form of a Polynomial

The "Standard Form" for writing down a polynomial is to put the terms with the highest degree first (like the "2" in x2 if there is one variable).

Since this is a quadratic equation, the standard form should appear this way

#y = ax^2 + bx + c#

In this case, you will have to expand and simplify (if possible) the equation to get the standard form.

[Solution]

#y = 5(x - 3)^2 - 7#

#y = 5(x^2 - 6x + 9) - 7#

#y = 5x^2 - 30x + 45 - 7#

#y = 5x^2 - 30x + 38#
