What is “Standard Form”?
It depends on what you are dealing with!
Standard Form of a Decimal Number
In Britain, this is another name for Scientific Notation, where you write down a number this way:
4321 = 4.321 × 103
In this example, 4321 is written as 4.321 × 103,
because 4321 = 4.321 × 1000 = 5.3266 × 103
In other countries it means “not in expanded form“:
