So there is a decimal after the last zero and it looks like this 5098000. You have to move the decimal point six back to get in between the five and the zero which looks like this 5.098000  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 5.6 x 10^9.Being that we moved the decimal six places back the answer is 5.098 x 10^6
