Answer:

Scientific notation: #1.4607465xx10^7#

Explanation:

In "scientific notation" a number is written as
#color(white)("XXX")a.bxx10^c#
where #a# is a single non-zero digit (except when the value being represented is equal to #0#),
#b# is a series of digits,
and #c# is the power of ten required to convert #a.b# into the normal form of the number.

For the number #14,607,465#
#color(white)("XXX")a=1#
#color(white)("XXX")b=4607465#

and since #1.4607465xx10000000 = 1.4607465xx10^7= 14,607,465#
#color(white)("XXX")c=7#
