Mar 14, 2018

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

$1 , 000 , 000 , 000 = 1.0 \times {10}^{9}$

$1 \times {10}^{9}$

#### Explanation:

$\implies 1 , 000 , 000 , 000$

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 ,

$\implies 1 \times {10}^{9}$
