Answer:

#1.342xx10^12#

Explanation:

#(6.1xx10^5)(2.2xx10^6)#

First, rewrite it so like terms are next to each other.

#6.1xx2.2xx10^5xx10^6#

Next, multiply the two numbers

#13.42xx10^5xx10^6#

Next, add the exponents base #10# units

#13.42xx10^(5+6)#

#13.42xx10^(11)#

Finally, move the decimal over one to the left and increase the power by one

#1.342xx10^12#
