# Q: How is the number 56,465 written in Scientific Notation?

A: 5.6465 x 10

^{4}
A: 5.6465 x 10^{4}

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 10 ^{b}**

Follow the steps below to see how 56,465 is written in scientific notation.

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

- Original Number: 56,465
- New Number: 5.6465

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

New Number: | 5 | . | 6 | 4 | 6 | 5 |

Decimal Count: | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |

There are **4** places to the right of the decimal place.

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

Remember, the notation is: **a x 10 ^{b}**

**a** = 5.6465

**b** = 4

Now the whole thing:

**5.6465 x 10 ^{4}**

Check your work:

10^{4} = 10,000 x 5.6465 = **56,465**
