Jun 27, 2018

$3240$

#### Explanation:

$3.24 \times {10}^{3} = 3.24 \times 1000$
This means you move the decimal spot 3 digit spaces to the right.

Count 3 spaces: $3 \setminus \textcolor{g r a y}{.} 2 \setminus \textcolor{red}{.} 4 \setminus \textcolor{red}{.} 0 \setminus \textcolor{red}{.} \setminus \rightarrow 3240.$
So then your number becomes $3240$
