What is the scientific notation for 500.

Hayley Rosario

500 is represented mathematically as 5*${10}^{2}$. Move the decimal, which is considered to be at the end of the number 500, two spaces to the left so that only the number 5 is to the left of the decimal. This will convert 500 to scientific notation. The decimal will be shifted to the right two places when the number is expanded, making the exponent a positive 2.
