Answer:

#9.3xx10^(-5) = 0.000093#

Explanation:

For a number in scientific notation:
#color(white)("XXX")a.b xx 10^k#
#k# indicates the number of places to the right the decimal point needs to be moved to write the number in normal form.
When #color(black)(k < 0)# then #abs(k)# is the number of places to the left the decimal point needs to be moved.
