Scientific notation is a way of expressing very large or very small numbers using powers of 10. It is often used in scientific calculations to make dealing with such numbers easier. Solving word problems involving scientific notation requires understanding how to manipulate these numbers, including operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

Steps to Solve Scientific Notation Word Problems:

- Convert numbers to scientific notation: If the numbers are not already in scientific notation, convert them.
- Perform the indicated operation:

- Multiplication: Multiply the decimal parts and add the exponents of 10.
- Division: Divide the decimal parts and subtract the exponents of 10.
- Addition and subtraction: Convert the numbers to the same power of 10 and then add or subtract the decimal parts. The exponent of 10 remains the same.

- Adjust the result: If necessary, adjust the result back into proper scientific notation form, ensuring the decimal part is between 1 and 10.
