# Python: Display a given decimal value in scientific notation

## Python module: Exercise-7 with Solution

Write a Python program to display a given decimal value in scientific notation. Use decimal.Decimal

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````import decimal
#Source: https://bit.ly/2SfZEtL
def format_e(n):
a = '%E' % n
return a.split('E')[0].rstrip('0').rstrip('.') + 'E' + a.split('E')[1]

print("Original decimal value: "+ "40800000000.00000000000000")
print("Scientific notation of the said decimal value:")
print(format_e(decimal.Decimal('40800000000.00000000000000')))
print("\nOriginal decimal value: "+ "40000000000.00000000000000")
print("Scientific notation of the said decimal value:")
print(format_e(decimal.Decimal('40000000000.00000000000000')))
print("\nOriginal decimal value: "+ "40812300000.00000000000000")
print("Scientific notation of the said decimal value:")
print(format_e(decimal.Decimal('40812300000.00000000000000')))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original decimal value: 40800000000.00000000000000
Scientific notation of the said decimal value:
4.08E+10

Original decimal value: 40000000000.00000000000000
Scientific notation of the said decimal value:
4E+10

Original decimal value: 40812300000.00000000000000
Scientific notation of the said decimal value:
4.08123E+10
```
