In the previous pod,
we converted values from
scientific notation into the more well known standard notation.
In this pod, we will complete the same operation in reverse.

Step 0: If there is no decimal point,
put one at the end of the number.

Step 1: Move the decimal point until it is in the
correct location.
It is in the correct location when there is precisely
one nonzero digit to the left
of the decimal point.
Count how many times you moved it.

Step 2: Figure out if the order of magnitude is positive or negative.

If you started with a BIG NUMBER and
moved the decimal point to the LEFT,
then the order of magnitude is POSITIVE.

If you started with a SMALL NUMBER
and moved the decimal point to the RIGHT,
then the order of magnitude is NEGATIVE

If you didn't need to move the exponent
at all, then the order of magnitude is zero.

BIG NUMBER = move LEFT = POSITIVE exponent
LITTLE NUMBER = move RIGHT = NEGATIVE exponent

Add the order of magnitude.
It is equal to the number of times you moved the decimal,
and is positive or negative.
Make sure that that you place the decimal point correctly for scientific notation!
