Answer:

#=>8.33 xx 10^5#

Explanation:

You write a decimal containing the significant digits before the trailing zeroes.

#833,000 =>8.33000#

Then you multiply by a power of #10#. Since #833,000# is shifted 5 decimal places to the left to arrive at #8.33000#, we multiply by #10^5#.

Hence, #8.33 xx 10^5# (we don't write the trailing zeroes).
