Expanded form is when you break down the number (s)
using the base ten system. Using expanded form with exponents is a whole different story.
Exponents are a number that tells the amount of times your number is supposed to go into itself.
So using exponents with expanded form takes focus. To do exponents with expanded form, you simply must know
your times tables. So if the question was: "1005 written in expanded form with exponents" , then you would do
(1 x 10 3) because the exponent is 3, it would equal 1000.
The next part would be, (5 x 10 0) and because the exponent is 0, it would equal to 5.
And then you would add them together. So it would be (1 x 10 3) + (5 x 10 0) = 1005
