Thread: how to convert problems into scientifc notation?

1. how to convert problems into scientifc notation?

What is the process you use to covert problems into scientific notation?

Could someone please give me a step by step example of how to solve a problem in this form?

Thank you,

2. $5,100 \times 21,000$

$5.1 \times 10^3 \times 2.1 \times 10^4$

$5.1 \times 2.1 \times 10^{3+4}$

$5.1 \times 2.1 \times 10^{7}$

3. Those are, of course, "numbers", not "problems". Perhaps Kevin19 could give a clearer explanation of what he means by converting a "problem" to scientific notation.
