Answer:

#color(crimson)(=> 3.439255 * 10^4#

Explanation:

#34392.55#

Scientific notation is a standard way of writing very large and very small numbers so that they’re easier to both compare and use in computations.

Step 1 : Move the decimal place to the left to create a new number from 1 up to 10.

Step 2 : Determine the exponent, which is the number of times you moved the decimal.

# N * 10^a#

#N = 3.439255#

#a = 4#

#color(crimson)(=> 3.439255 * 10^4#
