 German translation:2,31 x 10 (superscript 4) Explanation:2,31 multipliziert mit 10 hoch 4 - but as a mathematical formula you would write: 2,31 x 10 (superscript 4) I cannot display superscript in my browser - if the 4 was a 2 the formula would look like this: 2,31 x 10² times = x / multipliziert mit 2nd power of 10 = 10² / 10 hoch 2 Hope, this is clear enough.

Explanation:
2,31 multipliziert mit 10 hoch 4 - but as a mathematical formula you would write:

2,31 x 10 (superscript 4)

I cannot display superscript in my browser - if the 4 was a 2 the formula would look like this:

2,31 x 10²

times = x / multipliziert mit
2nd power of 10 = 10² / 10 hoch 2

Hope, this is clear enough.
