How do you simplify and write #(1.25 times 10^6) + (250 times 10^3)# in standard notation?
See a solution process below:
To add these two terms we need to convert to a common factor for the 10s terms.
We can rewrite
We can now rewrite the entire expression:
Next we can factor
To rewrite this in standard scientific notation we can move the decimal point 3 places to the left and add
Or to rewrite this in standard notation we need to move the decimal point 3 places to the right:
