We've described a number and written it in scientific notation with the power of 10 missing. You fill in the power. A quick refresher: 10 to the zero power is 1, 10 to the 1st power is 10, 10 to the 2nd power is 100, and so on; 10 to the -1 power is 0.1, 10 to the -2 power is 0.01, and so on. Remember, we are looking for the power, not the number referred to in the clue, so your answer will be an integer.
