Answer:

#3.00*10^-4#

Explanation:

When we write numbers in scientific notation, we want the first non-zero digit ahead of the decimal.

In our case, the decimal would be behind the #3#. This means we must loop the decimal four times to the right.

The four will be the exponent on #10#, but it'll be negative since we looped right. Thus, we have

#3.00*10^-4#

Hope this helps!
