# How do you write 0.75 thousand in scientific notation?

Mar 10, 2016

$7.5 \times {10}^{2}$

#### Explanation:

With scientific notation (or standard form), we always lay it out with a 1 digit number between 1 and 10 (including 1 but not 10).
Or rather $1 \le n < 10$

Then, we multiply it by a 10 to the power of something until it is big or small enough.

$0.75$ thousand is $750$ which would then be changed to $7.5$ and multiplied by $100$ to get it to 750.
$100$ is just ${10}^{2}$, so we write $7.5 \times {10}^{2}$.

Hope this helps; let me know if I can do anything else:)
