Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You now want the decimal point right after the 7. Count how many places the decimal point needs to move to the left: dw:1435000515925:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The decimal point moved 5 places to the left. That means 7.15 is 10^5 times smaller than 715,000 If you multiply 7.15 by 10^5, the result will be equal to 715,000.
