Unformatted text preview: • Mantissa and exponent must be separated by the letter e (or E ). ScientiFc notation is used when the numbers are very small or very large. ±or example, it is easier to represent 0.000000001 as 1e-9 . 2.2.2 Operators The evaluation of expressions is achieved with arithmetic operators , shown in the table below. Operators operate on operands ( a and b in the table). Operation Algebraic form Matlab Example Addition a + b a + b ±+3 Subtraction a − b a - b 23-12 Multiplication a × b a * b 3.14*0.85 Right division a ÷ b a / b 56/8 Left division b ÷ a a \ b 8\56 Exponentiation a b a ^ b ±^2 Examples of expressions constructed from numbers and operators, processed by Matlab : >> 3 + 4 16...
