Answer:

#3.478*10^3#

Explanation:

To convert a number to the scientific form, you have to move the decimal point until there is only one number before the decimal point.

#3478# is actually #3478.00# (move the decimal point over until there is only one number in front of the decimal point)

After moving the decimal point, we see that we moved 3 spaces:
#3.478# so we are going to raise 10 to the power of the number of spaces moved.

#3.478*10^3#
