Step 1

1 of 3Recall that we convert scientific notation to ordinary notation by moving the decimal point to the right if the power of ten is raised to positive, to the left if it is negative.

We re-write the choices as:

$\begin{aligned} &\ (a) 0.50\\ &\ (b) 5,000.\\ &\ (c) 500,000 \end{aligned}$
