# How do you write 314,207 in standard form?

Mar 3, 2018

$3.14207 \times {10}^{5}$

#### Explanation:

Standard form requires only one digit before the decimal.

So , you need to write $314207$ as $3.143207$.

But as you see they are not equal.

So , as we have shifted the decimal to left by $5$ places , we just need to multiply it by ${10}^{5}$ to make them equal.

So , in standard form $314207$ is written as $3.14207 \times {10}^{5}$.
