Answer:

#7.348*10^7#

Explanation:

The key realization is that when we write numbers in scientific notation, we want one digit before the decimal point.

In our case, we must loop it #7# times to the left. The number of times we loop it is our exponent, and looping left makes it positive. Thus, we have

#7.348*10^7#

Hope this helps!
