If the sun is 92.96 million miles away, you could write it as 92960000 or 9.296 * 10^7 miles away.

 

If there are 7.442 billion as of 2016, you could write it as 7442000000 or 7.442 * 10^9 miles away.

Of course, scientific notation can be used to represent the size of a cell. Astronomers heavily rely on the use of scientific notation because of the vast distance between each star.
