# How do you write 93,000,000  in scientific notation?

Mar 9, 2018

$9.3 \times {10}^{7}$

#### Explanation:

The decimal point is to the right of the last zero, so move it to the left until you get in between the $9 \mathmr{and} 3$, so that there is only one digit to the left.

That's $7$ spaces, so your answer will be $9.3 \times {10}^{7.}$

Scientific notation will always be written as
$\text{ a number} \times 10$ raised to a power.

The number will be between $1 \mathmr{and} 10$

In case you ever have a scenario when your decimal moves the other way, the exponent then would be negative. For now your exponent is positive.
