Question from Sandra, a student:

What is 37,008 in exponential form? Help me please!!!

Hi Sandra,

Exponential form just means the form involves exponents so there are many correct responses to this question. If this comes from a textbook or teacher do you have an example of what is expected? If you search the Quandaries and Queries database for exponential form you will see how we have responded to similar questions. Maybe one of them will help. It may be that what is expected is an expansion of the place value notation.
