Jun 18, 2018

$1.2606 \times {10}^{4} \mathmr{and} 1.2606E4$

Explanation:

$12606$ is written as $1.2606 \times {10}^{4}$

Note: Counting from right to left, the exponential value would be positive, while counting from left to right, the exponential value would be negative.

So having, $12606$ counting from right to left, we moved the decimal point across four places. That is the reason why the exponential/scientific value is $4$

Hence making; $12606 = 1.2606 \times {10}^{4} \mathmr{and} 1.2606E4$ in scientific notation..
