Answer:

#6.75xx 10^4#

Explanation:

Scientific notation is a way of writing very big or very numbers as a power of #10#.

It is written in the form # a xx 10^n# where #a# is a number between #1 and 10# and #n# is an integer.
There must be only one digit before the decimal point.

#10,000 = 10^4#

#67,500 = 6.75 xx 10,000#

#67,500 =6.75 xx 10^4#

Move the decimal point until there is one digit to the left .
Count how many place holders you moved.

#6color(blue)(7,500) = 6color(blue)(.7500) xx 10^4#
