# How do you convert 7.87 x 10^5 into standard notation?

Jul 11, 2015

Remember that ${10}^{5} = 100000$ or a 1 with 5 zeroes.

#### Explanation:

Thus: $7.87 \cdot {10}^{5} = 7.87 \cdot 100000 = 787000$

Another way would be to move the decimal point 5 places to the right and fille up with zeroes.
