Without a calculator, write 0.007052 in standard form.
Standard form will be written as a × 10^{n}. Ignore the place value and find the leading non-zero digit. Use this to find the value of a.
a = 7.052
The original number is smaller than 1 so n will be negative. Count how many times you need to divide a by 10 to get the original number.
0.007052 = 7.052 ÷ 10 ÷ 10 ÷ 10
Therefore n = -3.
0.007052 = 7.052 × 10^{-3}
