# How do you convert 2.16 x 10^6 into standard form?

Sep 7, 2015

$2.16 \times {10}^{6} = 2 , 160 , 000$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXXXXXXXX}}$(perhaps)

#### Explanation:

The term "standard form" means different things to different people (in different parts of the world).

In many places "standard form" is a synonym for "scientific notation". This is what the other answer posted here assumes.

Also you may find "normal form" as another synonym for "scientific notation".

I expect what you were looking for is the answer given above:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}} 2.16 \times 1000000 = 2 , 160 , 000$
but I don't know what term you could use for this form that would be universally accepted.

By the way before I get lots of comments that "standard form" is never used in the way (I assume) you meant, here is a link:
