Neither. They would be 1.77 x 10^(-7) = 0.000000177 and 5.21 x 10^(-7) = 0.000000521.

Hope someone can help me with this simple question.

The logit command returned my coefficient estimates and (robust) standard errors, but some coefficients came up as the following:

Coeff: 1.77e-07
Std error: 5.21e-07

Does this mean 1.77 times e to the power -7 or instead, 1.77 times e to the power -0.07?
I know this sounds silly, but I hope someone can clarify this for me. Thanks
