Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:[tex]6*10^{5}[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:Move the decimal so there is on non-zero digit to the left of the decimal point. The number of decimal places you move will be the exponent on the 10. If the decimal is being moved to the right, the exponent will be negative. If the decimal is being moved to the left, the exponent will be positive.For this number, you have to move the decimal over 5 to the left.600,000.1: 60,000.02: 6,000.003: 600.0004: 60.00005: 6.00000Because the decimal was moved 5 times to the left, the exponent is a positive 5.[tex]6*10^5[/tex]
