Answer:

#2.50xx10^4#

Explanation:

The key realization is that we want one non-zero digit before the decimal point. This means we need to loop it #4# times to the left.

The number of times we loop it will be our power of #10#, and since we looped the decimal to the left, the power will be positive. Thus, we have

#2.50xx10^4#

Hope this helps!
