$2.80 \cdot {10}^{9}$

#### Explanation:

The scientific notation is expressed by a number rounded off to two decimal places and then multiplied by ${10}^{n}$, where $n$ is a natural number.

So here, we have the number $2 , 796 , 460 , 000$, or $2.796$ billion.

$1$ billion is the same as ${10}^{9}$.

So here, we got

$2.796 \cdot {10}^{9}$

Rounding off $2.796$ to two decimal places, we get $2.80$. So, the final answer will be

$2.80 \cdot {10}^{9}$
