Scientific notation is the way that scientists easily handle very large numbers or very small numbers. For example, instead of writing 0.0000000056, we write [latex]5.6 * 10^{-9} [/latex]. Hence, in scientific notation 0.000028 = [latex]2.8 * 10^{-5} [/latex] So, the answer is -5. The power of ten has to be -5.
