# How do you write 8million in scientific notation?

May 13, 2018

$8 \times {10}^{6}$

#### Explanation:

$8 , 000 , 000 = 8 , 000 , 000.0$

Move the decimal point until only the 8 is in front of it, so:

$8.000000$

Now in order to complete scientific notation, you have to have $8 \times {10}^{n}$ to the power of some number, and this number is the number of spaces you moved the decimal point.

In this case $n = 6$

so $8 \times {10}^{6}$
