# How do you write 69,800,000 in scientific notation?

##### 1 Answer

The SN form is

#### Explanation:

Scientific Notation (SN) is one where the first number is less than 10 (values

Now that we have the first part of the SN form, we can convert the second into a base-10 exponent.

The easiest way to do this is start counting zeros, starting from the ones place. This applies to both large numbers, and decimals.

For instance, if we have the number 1000, you count three zeros, and you have the conversion

Working with 10,000,000 you can see we have 7 zeros, which means the conversion is

Now, we have our full SN version of the original number:
