    715,000 = 7.15 x 10 to the 5th power becuase you are moving the decimal place to the right 5 spaces making 715,000 = 715,000.

    You 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|

    The 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.
