We need to move the decimal point 9 places to the left so the exponent for the 10s term will be positive:

#1,000,000,000 = 1.0 xx 10^9#

For writing a number in the scientific notation , you need to shift the decimal so that there is only one digit before the decimal.

In this case , shift the decimal to nine places left.

You get ,

#=> 1xx10^9#
