# What is 119,000,000 in a scientific notation?

Aug 2, 2018

$1.19 \cdot {10}^{8}$

#### Explanation:

When we write numbers in scientific notation, we want one digit before the decimal.

In our case, this means we must loop it $8$ times to the left. The number of times we loop it is our exponent- looping left makes it positive.

We get

$1.19 \cdot {10}^{8}$

Hope this helps!
