### What is 5400000 in scientific notation?

5.4 X 106
-------------------
Instead of giving you the answer for the question only, let met
explain this to you.
5400000
You want to write 5400000 in scientific notation.
after 54, 00000 is merely a place holder.
These need to be separated from the actual important number
"54"
scientific notation always follow the formula: (A) x 10^(B)
, where (A) should not be smaller than 1 AND should be smaller
than 10. (B) should be integer only (negative, 0 or positive)
To write 5400000 in scientific notation:
see where you can place a decimal to make (A) for your
scientific notation formula. 0.54 is too small, and 54 is too big.
5.4 works perfect for (A) - remember (A) should not be smaller than
1 AND should be smaller than 10.
then it's 5.4 00000 - Look at your decimal. To find out your (B)
from your sci. notation, we have to find out how far is the decimal
(the decimal that you just placed between 5 and 4) from your
decimal location "ones" (for 5400000, it's the last 0 from right).
You "hop" the little dot that is between 5.4 to the "ones" decimal.
how many times did it hop? 6 times! (B) is positive when a number
(before you do scientific notation) is larger than 10. Your number
is much larger than 10 (5400000, duh!). Your (B) is 6.
(A) x 10^(B) is the scientific notation formula. our (A) is 5.4
and our (B) is 6. Plug-n-chug time~!
Your answer is 5.4 x 10^6
It is: 5.4*10^6 in scientific notation
