Jan 18, 2017

$19800000$

#### Explanation:

$1.98 \times {10}^{7}$
means
$1.98$ $\text{multiplied by 10 seven times}$
$\implies 1.98 \times \left(10 \times 10 \times 10 \times 10 \times 10 \times 10 \times 10\right)$

The figure within parenthesis is $1$ followed by seven zeros
$\implies 1.98 \times \left(10000000\right)$

Removing the decimal we get

$19800000$
