Answer:

#375000# in scientific notation is #3.75xx10^5#.

Explanation:

In scientific notation a number is written as #axx10^n#, where #n# is an integer and #a# is a number which has just one digit to the left of decimal i.e. #1<=a<10#.

Hence to write #375000# in scientific notation, we will have to move decimal five places to the left.

Hence #375000# in scientific notation is #3.75xx10^5#

Answer:

#3.75*10^5#

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 #5# times to the left. The number of times we loop it is our exponent, and looping left makes it positive. Thus, we have

#3.75*10^5#

Hope this helps!
