Answer:

#8.0000304*10^7#

Explanation:

Scientific notation requires you to write the number as a real number between 1 and 10, multiplied by the appropriate number of powers of 10. For example, #25# is #2.5 *10^1# and #136# is #1.36*10^2#

In this case, the decimal point needs to be moved #7# places to get a number less than #10# so the answer is #8.0000304*10^7#
