# Changing the y-axis tick style of a RegionPlot

I have an inequality of the form $f(x,y) < 1$ and plot it with

RegionPlot[f[x, y] < 1, {x, 0, 5}, {y, 10^-7, 10^-4}]


The y-axis ticks are displayed as 0.000001 and so on. How can I change the tick style to display them as 10^-6 and so on?

• it seems there is a typo in your code. it should be {x,0,5} ,not {0,x,5} – Alucard Oct 31 '17 at 12:33
