how would i write this in scientific
notation 14,718? how would i write this in standard notation 1.98 x 10 to the second power

14,718 could be rewritten as 1.4718*10^4, which is read as "1.4718 times 10 to the fourth power." (The asterisk is often used as the multiplcation sign, so it doesn't get mixed up with "x" used as an unknown.)

1.98*10^2 = 1.98*100 = 198.

I searched Google under the key words "math scientific notation" to get these possible sources:
