# How do you write 8.2 x 10^5 in standard notation?

Sep 19, 2015

Either $8.2 \times {10}^{5}$ is already in standard notation
or you want $820 , 000$
To convert from scientific notation to common form move the decimal point in the mantissa (in this case $8.2$) to the right the number of places indicated by $10$'s exponent (in this case 5). [If the exponent is negative the decimal point will be moved to the left].
