When in some question it is mentioned that

10n = something

I have seen it getting used as either in the material..

They specify it clearly in the question:
If the question doesn't say anything, 10n means 10*n. In case they mean to say that n is the unit's digit of a 3 digit number, it will say so. e.g. given a three digit number 10n such that n is a digit...
