# How do you write  1440000 in scientific form?

Jun 4, 2018

$1.44 \times {10}^{6}$

#### Explanation:

$1440000$

$\textcolor{b l u e}{1} \textcolor{red}{440000}$

There $\textcolor{b l u e}{1}$ gets written first, followed by a decimal and the remaining numbers. There are $\textcolor{red}{6}$ digits following the $\textcolor{b l u e}{1}$, which will be the power of $10$. We keep non-zeroes ($\textcolor{\mathmr{and} a n \ge}{44}$) explicitly to ensure that the original number and the number in scientific notation have equal significant figures.

$\textcolor{b l u e}{1} . \textcolor{\mathmr{and} a n \ge}{44} \times {10}^{\textcolor{red}{6}}$
