Answer:

#5.601*10^3#

Explanation:

In #5601#, there is a decimal point behind the #1#, so it looks like:

#5601.0#

To change it to scientific notation, you have to move the decimal point until there is only one number in front of the decimal point:

#5.601#

Now that you have moved the decimal point, you have to multiply #5.601# by #10# raised to the power of some number, in this case, #3# since you moved the decimal point three spaces to the left.

#5.601*10^3#
