What is 6 million written in scientific notation?

Answer:

$6.0 \times {10}^{6}$

Explanation:

6,000,000.

You need to move the decimal point to where you have a number between 1 and less than 10 (like 9.99999)

$6.0 \times {10}^{n}$

Now to find the value of the n, count how many places you need to move the decimal point in order to change it from 6,000,000. to 6.0. My count says 6 places. So the scientific notation version of 6 million is

$6.0 \times {10}^{6}$ you could also say $6 \times {10}^{6}$.

I hope this helps,
