Answer:

#6.612 xx 10^58#

Explanation:

#((2.001 xx 10^34) xx (2.812 xx 10^31))/(8.510 xx 10^6#

Re-arrange the factors:

#((color(red)(2.001 xx 2.812) xx color(blue)(10^34 xx 10^31)))/(8.510 xx 10^6#

Multipliy the numbers and add the indices of like bases,

#(color(red)(5.626812) xx color(blue)(10^65))/(8.510 xx 10^6#

Divide the numbers and subtract the indices of like bases

#0.6612 xx 10^59#

Write in correct scientific notation:

#6.612 xx 10^58#
