Answer:

#3.6*10^-3#

Explanation:

When we write numbers in scientific notation, we want one non-zero digit before the decimal.

This means we need to loop the decimal #3# times to the right. The number of times we looped it is our exponent, and looping it right makes it negative.

Thus, we now have

#3.6*10^-3#

Hope this helps!
