# The distance between the sun and Saturn is approximately 887,000,000 miles, how do you write it in scientific notation?

$8.87 \times {10}^{8}$ miles
To express a number that is greater than $10$ in scientific notation, count the number of times that you have to divide it by $10$ until it is less than $10$. That count gives you the exponent. Dividing by $10$ is the same as shifting one digit to the right.
