See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Identify the given number

We are given the number 80,000, which needs to be written in scientific notation.

## Step 2: Convert the number to the form a*10^n

To express 80,000 in the form a*10^n, we need to find values for a and n. We can do this by moving the decimal point of the given number to the left until we have a number between 1 and 10. In this case, we have to move the decimal point 4 places to the left to get the number 8. So now we have the number in the form of 8 * 10^4.

## Step 3: Write the final answer

We have successfully converted the given number (80,000) into scientific notation. The final answer is: $$8 * 10^4$$
