Answer:

#3,14*10^-4#

Explanation:

I really can't make it easier. A tip i can give you is how manny times you have to move the decimal to get the first number to not be a decimal and the amount of times you have to move the decimal is the exponent of the base 10. For example here I moved the 4 times to get the 3 to be before the decimal so now I know that is has to be #3,14*10^-4#

Answer:

#3.14*10^-4#

Explanation:

When given a decimal which is less than 0, count the number of zeros.

#color(red)(0).color(red)(000)314#, there are #color(red)(4)# zeros here, so the answer will be #3.14*10^(-color(red)(4))#
