3.9256 x #10^-5#


In scientific notation, the number must between 1 and 9.9. To find the scientific notation, you bring the decimal to the left or right to get it in between those numbers. Count how many times you the decimal. If you move the decimal right, the exponent will be negative. If it's moved left, your exponent is positive.
