You can't forget to write out the 10. $\displaystyle 28000000 = 2.8 \times 10^7$ Mathematically speaking, $\displaystyle 2.8^7 = 2.8 \times 2.8 \times 2.8 \times 2.8 \times 2.8 \times 2.8 \times 2.8 \times 2.8 = 1349.2928512$ -Dan
Generally ^ is the power sign in computer languages as many comupter languages can't display power properly. So 10^6 generally means 10*10*10*10*10*10 (6-times) or 1000000
