In the case of a negative exponent, the decimal is moved to the left (this is the same as dividing by 10 a number of times).

In the case of a positive exponent, the decimal is moved to the right (this is the same as multiplying by 10 a number of times).

The negative exponent here, −4, indicates that the decimal point is to be moved to the left 4 places, $5183_w81_h21.png$ = 0.00066.
