# What is 5times10^2 in a standard notation?

Jun 29, 2016

500

#### Explanation:

5 is 5
${10}^{2}$ is 100

$5 \times 100 = 500$

${10}^{2}$ is just 1 with 2 zeros to the right of 1, the amount of zeros that are to the right of 1 are equal to the exponent the right of 10 in ${10}^{x}$
$x$ = the amount of zeros to the right of 1 when multiplying any number by 10 with an exponent.
In this case $x$ = 2 so ${10}^{2} = 100.$

$5 \times {10}^{2} = 5 \times 100 = 500$
