# How do you convert 3.4 xx 10^7 into expanded notation?

Jul 22, 2015

$34 , 000 , 000$
Move the decimal 7 places to the right to get $34 , 000 , 000$.
This can also be thought of as $3.4 \setminus \times {10}^{7} = 3.4 \setminus \times 10 , 000 , 000 = 34 , 000 , 000$
Alternatively, $3.4 \setminus \times {10}^{7} = 34 \setminus \times {10}^{6} = 34 \setminus \times 1 , 000 , 000 = 34 , 000 , 000$, which can be read as "thirty-four million".
