Answer:

#3.010 xx 10^-6#

Explanation:

First we identify how many decimal places after the decimal the first significant digit (#3#) is.

In this case, it is #6# places to the right of the decimal.

Since the number we want to express in scientific notation is less than #1#, we multiply by a power of ten that is negative. So we will have #10^-6#.

Hence, we get:

#3.010 xx 10^-6#
