Answer:

# 9.6 xx10^-2 #

Explanation:

A number in scientific notation has to satisfy the following conditions

It has to be of the form : # a xx10^n #

where 1 ≤ a < 10 , and n is an integer.

To convert 0.096 into a number between 1 and 10 = 9.6

To put it back into it's original form requires moving the
decimal point 2 places to the left from where we have put it.

#rArr 0.096 = 9.6 xx 10^-2 #

In scientific notation the numbers are written in the following form

#m times 10^n #

here the exponent #n# is chosen so that the absolute value of #m# remains at least one but less than ten or #(1 ≤ |m| < 10)#
