Q: How is the number 720,000,000 written in Scientific Notation?

A: 7.2 x 108

Why is 720,000,000 written as 7.2 x 108 in scientific notation?

The purpose of scientific notation is for scientists to write very large, or very small, numbers with ease.

Calculating scientific notation for a positive integer is simple, as it always follows this notation:

a x 10b

Follow the steps below to see how 720,000,000 is written in scientific notation.

Step 1

To find a, take the number and move a decimal place to the right one position.

Original Number: 720,000,000

New Number: 7.20000000

Step 2

Now, to find b, count how many places to the right of the decimal.

New Number:7.20000000

Decimal Count:  12345678

There are 8 places to the right of the decimal place.

Step 3

Building upon what we know above, we can now reconstruct the number into scientific notation.

Remember, the notation is: a x 10b

a = 7.2 (Please notice any zeroes on the end have been removed)

b = 8

Now the whole thing:

7.2 x 108

Step 4

108 = 100,000,000 x 7.2 = 720,000,000
