Answer:

#1.44*10^4#

Explanation:

#2,400,000 * 0.006#

first, write them as a scientific numbers

#(2.4*10^6)*(6.0*10^-3)#

then multiply power one terms together and 10 to power something to gether

#(2.4*6)*(10^6*10^-3)#

when you multiply same number to different powers you add the powers together so

#(2.4*6)*(10^(6+(-3)))#

#14.4*10^3#

note that scientific numbers are between 1 to 9
so 14 is not included so

move the point to the left, when you move it to the left one step you multiply by 10 so


#color(red)(10^3 * 10 = 10^4)#


#1.44*10^4#
