Answer:

You move the decimal point, untill you have just one non-zero in front of it.

Explanation:

You have to move 5 places , which means the exponent of the #10#-power will be #5#.
You move to the left , which means the power will be positive.

#=6.34xx10^(5)#

An other way would be to consider that:
#=6.34xx100000=6.34xx10^(5)#
