Answer:

#3.6*10^8#

Explanation:

The number has to be changed to contain 1 significant figure.
Count the number of zeros and put it in terms of 10^_.

Eg: #100=10^2#, #10000000000=10^10#

#360000000=36*10^7#

This is in 2 significant figures.
Change this to 1 significant figure, and multiply another power of 10.

#3.6*10^8#
