Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes that's correct BUT scientific notation, uses only one number to the left of the dot you have two numbers \(\bf \underline{63}.02\times 10^6\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0same thing, we simply move the dot over to the left one more slot so we end up with only one digit on the left side :)
