8-19.

Copy and complete the table at right for powers of $10$.

1. Use the pattern in the completed table to decide how many zeros $10^{7}$ will have. How many zeros will $10^{23}$ have?

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?

2. How would you tell someone to write $10^{50}$? Do not actually write the number; just write a sentence telling someone how they would write it.

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