#### Explanation:

Since

#4.1xx10^-3" is already in standard form"# I am assuming that you require the number that is represented

by#4.1xx10^-3# Consider the general form of

#10^n#

#•" If n is positive move the decimal point to the right by n"#

#•"If n is negative move the decimal point to the left by n"#

#"here "n=-3larrcolor(red)"move 3 places left"# It would probably help by placing some 0's before the 4

#rArr4.1xx10^-3=0.0041#
