Answer:

#1.2606 xx 10^4 or 1.2606E4#

Explanation:

#12606# is written as #1.2606 xx 10^4#

Note: Counting from right to left, the exponential value would be positive, while counting from left to right, the exponential value would be negative.

So having, #12606# counting from right to left, we moved the decimal point across four places. That is the reason why the exponential/scientific value is #4#

Hence making; #12606 = 1.2606 xx 10^4 or 1.2606E4# in scientific notation..
