Answer:

#4.52*10^-3#

Explanation:

When we write numbers in scientific notation, we want one digit before the decimal point.

In our case, we must loop the decimal #3# times to the right. The number of times we loop it is our exponent, and looping right makes it positive. Thus, we have

#4.52*10^-3#

Hope this helps!
