    you wouldn't write 4.7 in scientific notation since it's already at one decimal place.

    4.7 x 10^1 implies that the number is 47.

    yes, 47.0, if you move the decimal place one place to the left, you'll get 4.7 x 10^1

    but for 4.7 as a scientific notation how many times do you move it to the left?

    it wouldn't move because it's already one decimal place after the first number

    you wouldn't need to write it as scientific notation.

    i would write it as 4.7 x 10^0 personally, but you wouldn't write 4.7 as scientific notation.
