#8.923 xx 10^-10 = 0.000,000,000,8923#


There seems to be a problem wit terminology here.
Scientific notation is usually also known as "standard form" which is what is given here.
However, "normal" notation is sometimes called "decimal notation", which is what you might be asking about.

#8.923 xx 10^-10# means that the number shown is smaller than we see by a factor of 10 divisions by 10. .

#8.923 xx 10^-10 = 0.000,000,000,8923#
