Answer:

#294117647.1 = 2.941176471 xx 10^8#
#color(white)("XXXX")#(standard notation = scientific notation)

Explanation:

Scientific notation is written in the form:
#color(white)("XXXX")# mantissa #xx 10^"exponent"#
where the mantissa is written as
#color(white)("XXXX")#a single non-zero digit (unless the entire value is zero)
#color(white)("XXXX")#followed by a decimal point
#color(white)("XXXX")#followed by the remaining digits
and
the exponent is
#color(white)("XXXX")#the number of places to the right the decimal point needs to be moved to convert the mantissa into standard form.
