# How do you write 100000 in scientific notation?

Feb 20, 2016

$1 \times {10}^{5}$
1. Always remember that writing scientific notation has this standard formula; $M \times {10}^{n}$, where $1 \le M < 10$, $M$ is called the coefficient
5. Observe that moving the decimal point to the left is always a positive exponent(+) $\left(L I P - L e f t I s P o s i t i v e\right)$, thus moving it the right is negative(-)
6. Thus, the scientific notation for this number is $1 \times {10}^{5}$
