Answer:

#8.67# x #10^9#

Explanation:

Start by moving the decimal until there's only 1 digit in front of it. Then, write out the number and place the exponent. The value of the exponent depends on the number of times we moved the decimal. Since we have to move the decimal to the left 9 times, the answer will be

#8,670,000,000#
#8.67# x #1000000000#
#8.67# x #10^9#
