Answer:

#0.0533 = 5.33 xx 10^-2#

Explanation:

We are working with a decimal fraction less than 1. The index of 10 will therefore be a negative number.

Move the decimal point 2 places to the right so that there is only one (non-zero) digit before the decimal point. Each place moved means a division by 10.

#0.0533 = 5.33 xx 10^-2#
