Answer:

#2.36*10^1#

Explanation:

When we write numbers in scientific notation, we want one non-zero digit before the decimal.

In our case, this means we must loop the decimal one time to the left. This will be our power of #10#. Since we are looping left, the exponent will be positive.

#23.6=2.36*10^1#

Notice, this is equal to #2.36*10#, which is equal to #23.6#.

Hope this helps!
