# What is the scientific notation of 5601?

Apr 8, 2018

$5.601 \cdot {10}^{3}$

#### Explanation:

In $5601$, there is a decimal point behind the $1$, so it looks like:

$5601.0$

To change it to scientific notation, you have to move the decimal point until there is only one number in front of the decimal point:

$5.601$

Now that you have moved the decimal point, you have to multiply $5.601$ by $10$ raised to the power of some number, in this case, $3$ since you moved the decimal point three spaces to the left.

$5.601 \cdot {10}^{3}$
