Answer:

#75488=7.5488xx10^4#

Explanation:

Scientific notation is generally used to write very small or vey large numbers.

While writing in scientific notation, we use a single number consisting of a single digit in front of the decimal (at unit's place) and multiply it with an integer power (i.e. negative or positive) of #10#. Hence, it is of the form #axx10^n#, where #1<=a<10# and #n# is an integer.

This way #75488# can be written as #7.5488xx10^4#.
