# How do you write the number 8,200,100 in scientific notation?

Jul 6, 2018

$8.2001 \cdot {10}^{6}$

#### Explanation:

When we write numbers in scientific notation, we want one non-zero digit before the decimal point. In our case, we must loop the decimal $6$ times to the left. This will be our exponent.

Since we looped the decimal to the left, the exponent will be positive. We will get

$8.2001 \cdot {10}^{6}$

Hope this helps!
