#.000265 = 2.65xx10^(-4)#


Any non-zero number in scientific notation is written as
#color(white)("xx")#a single non-zero digit, followed by a decimal point followed by as sequence of digits
multiplied by
#color(white)("xx")#10 to an exponential power which will cause the decimal point to shift an appropriate number of places (left with a negative exponent, right with a positive) to form the original number.
