$\textcolor{b l u e}{8.3 \times {10}^{7}}$

#### Explanation:

$\textcolor{b l u e}{83 000 000 \times 1} = 83 000 000$

$\textcolor{b r o w n}{\text{But 1 can be written as } {10}^{7} / {10}^{7}}$

$\textcolor{b l u e}{83000000 \times {10}^{7} / {10}^{7}} = 83000000 \times 1 = 83000000$

$\textcolor{b l u e}{\frac{\textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{83000000}}{\textcolor{g r e e n}{{10}^{7}}} \times {10}^{7}} = 83000000 \times 1 = 83000000$

$\textcolor{b r o w n}{\text{Divide the denominator of "color(green)(10^7)" into } \textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{83000000}}$

$\textcolor{b l u e}{8.3 \times {10}^{7}} = 83000000$
