^{5}Copy and complete the table at right for powers of 10. Homework Help ✎

Use the pattern in the completed table to decide how many zeros 10

^{7}will have. How many zeros will 10^{23}have?How would you tell someone to write 10

^{50}? Do not actually write the number; just write a sentence telling someone how he or she would write it.

Look at 10^{1} = 10 and 10^{2} = 100 closely. What do the exponents tell you about the standard form?

The exponent tells you how many zeros there are in the standard form. Complete the table. How many zeros will 10^{23} have?

Look at the pattern in part (a) and describe how you would find 10^{50}?
