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,

$\displaystyle 5,100 \times 21,000$ $\displaystyle 5.1 \times 10^3 \times 2.1 \times 10^4$ $\displaystyle 5.1 \times 2.1 \times 10^{3+4}$ $\displaystyle 5.1 \times 2.1 \times 10^{7}$
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.
