Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That means 8.763196 x 10^(7), which is the same as \[\frac{8.763196}{10^7}\] Every time you divide by 10, you move the decimal point one place to the left ... so, how many places to the left would you have to move the decimal point?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's it! One place to the left got you just before the 8; six more places inserted the six zeros. Good!
