The ^ symbol means "to the power of"

so 10^9 in english means "10 to the power of 9"

its short-hand notation for 10x10x10....x10x10 doing that 9 times :D

how do you calculate that ?? well depending on the type of calculator you have the sequence of buttons will be different but the answer should be 1,000,000,000 = 1 billion!!

therefore 6 x 10^9 means 6 multiplied with 10 to the power of 9 = 6 billion..
