#1.00005 *10^5#


Scientific notation means writing a number as a number between 1 and 10 multiplied by the appropriate power of 10.
To find the appropriate small number we need to divide by ten five times over, or in other words #100005# is the small number multiplied by ten five times over .
The number is therefore #1.00005 *10^5#
