#### Answer

$1.89\times10^8$

#### Work Step by Step

To convert a number from standard notation to scientific notation, we must move the decimal to the left or to the right, counting the number of places, until the number is between $1$ and $10$, and multiply by a power of $10$. If the number is less than $1$, and we moved the decimal to the right, the power of $10$ is the negative number of places we moved the decimal point. If the number is greater than $1$, and we moved the decimal to the left, the power of $10$ is the positive number of places we moved the decimal point.
To convert the number $189,000,000$ to scientific notation, we move the decimal place $8$ places to the left, which means the power of $10$ will be $8$.
This gives us the expression $1.89\times10^{8}$
