Oct 5, 2017

$1.5 \cdot {10}^{8}$ kilometers

#### Explanation:

So the distance between the earth and the sun is 150 million kilometers. In scientific notation, you have to find the number between 1 and 10, then multiply it by ${10}^{x}$. So the number between 1 and 10 in 150,000,000 is 1.5, and a number of decimal points is 8. So the answer is $1.5 \cdot {10}^{8}$
