Answer:

#2.3*10^1#

Explanation:

First of all, you should have the number that isn't a multiple of ten written first, like so:

#0.23*10^2#

Then, actually multiply to get a number.

#0.23*10^2 = 23#

Then, write the new equation with a number larger than 1, but less than 10, and multiply it by a multiple of ten

#23=2.3*10=2.3*10^1#

We use 10^1, as you need to multiply 2.3 by 10 to get 23
