Move the decimal to the left until there is only one non-zero digit (1-9 inclusive) in front of the decimal. This is called the coefficient. The coefficient contains the significant figures. The number of places the decimal is moved is the exponent on the #10#, and since the decimal is moved to the left, the exponent is positive. This is due to the fact that when expanding this number to its standard form, the decimal will be moved to the right #14# places.
