Answer:

#1.7918752413600# x #10^-13#

Explanation:

First, follow PEMDAS (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiply, Divide, Add, Subtract).

Multiply what's in your parentheses first:

(#5.67811# x #10^5#) = #567,811#
(#3.15576# × #10#^7) = #31,557,600#

Now, multiply.

#567,811# x #31,557,600# = #17,918,752,413,600#

In scientific notation:

#1.7918752413600# x #10^-13#
