#### Explanation:

Multiplying a decimal number by ${10}^{8}$ causes the decimal point to move $8$ positions to the right.

$0.0259 \times {10}^{1} = 0.259$
$0.0259 \times {10}^{2} = 2.59$
$0.0259 \times {10}^{3} = 25.9$
$0.0259 \times {10}^{4} = 259.0$
$0.0259 \times {10}^{5} = 2590.0$
$0.0259 \times {10}^{6} = 25900.0$
$0.0259 \times {10}^{7} = 259000.0$
$0.0259 \times {10}^{8} = 2590000.0$
