$2360000$ is $2.36 \times {10}^{6}$ in scientific notation

#### Explanation:

${10}^{6} = 1000000$

$\frac{2360000}{2360000} = 2.36$

$2.36 \times 1000000 = 2360000$

$2360000$ is $2.36 \times {10}^{6}$ in scientific notation

$2.36 \cdot {10}^{6}$

#### Explanation:

The key realization is that when we write numbers in scientific notation, we want one digit before the decimal point.

In our case, we must loop it $6$ times to the left. The number of times we loop it is our exponent, and looping it left makes it positive. Thus, we have

$2.36 \cdot {10}^{6}$

Hope this helps!
