Chapter 5 - Section 5.1 - Exponents and Scientific Notation - Exercise Set: 118



Work Step by Step

We are given the number $2.7\times10^{-5}$. Since the exponent is negative, move the decimal 5 places to the left. Note that 5 places to the left will be 4 decimal places past the first digit (2), so we will add 4 zeroes before 2. $2.7\times10^{-5}=.000027$
