Answer:

#5xx10^(-3)#

Explanation:

#x/1.2=0.006/1.2#

Multiply by 1 but in the form of #1=100/100#

#(0.006xx1000)/(1.2xx1000) = 6/1200#

Another way of writing 1200 is #12xx10^2#

#6/1200=6/12xx1/10^2#

#=1/2xx1/10^2 = 0.5/10^2#

Multiply by 1 but in the form of #1=10/10#

#(0.5xx10)/(10^2xx10) = 5/10^3#

#=5xx10^(-3)#
