1 Answer

Answer:

#5.4 * 10^7#

Explanation:

We have #54 000 000#
It can be translated as #5.4 * 10000000#
Which is #5.4*10000*1000#
A power of #10# is #10# at the power of how many #0#s we have, if that makes sense.

So #1000# is #10^3# since we have 3 #0#s.
#10000# is #10^4# because there are 4 #0#s.
So we have #5.4*10^4*10^3=5.4*10^(4+3)=5.4*10^7#
