Answer:

#6,29 * 10^9#

Explanation:

Since you are only multiplying, you can split the equation into two parts; decimal numbers and tens.

You can therefore write the equation like this:
#(1,7 * 3,7) * (10^6 * 10^3)#
Calculate the product of the decimal numbers, and add up the exponents of the tens.

#10^6 * 10^3 = 10^(6+3) = 10^9#
