    Okay so we have to put that long number into a single digit x 10 to the power of x

    So the equation would be n x 10^x

    Could you put the equation together?

    Yeah so since there are 14 0s that x would be 13.

    So putting the equation together... it would be 16.7 x 10^13

    hint: starting from the rightmost zero, you have to shift the decimal point of 16 places and you will get: \[\Large 1.67 \cdot {10^{16}}\]
