Hint:In the given question, we have been given the scientific notation of a number written in a phrase. To solve this, we must know what a scientific notation is – it is a way of writing extremely large numbers including lots of zeroes, in the form of a single digit followed by a decimal point, followed by the rest of non-zero numbers, followed by multiplication with ten raised to the power of condensed numbers, including the zeroes.

First, one million is one followed by six zeroes, or, $1,000,000$.
$1 \times {10^6}$
Hence, one million can be written as $1 \times {10^6}$.
The way of writing in the scientific notation is especially helpful to physicists, scientists, researchers who are working with very large numbers. For example, writing $1$ followed by twenty-nine zeros is very space and time consuming, so it is better to write it as $1 \times {10^{29}}$. This small notation saved so many zeroes’ space and time.
