Answer:

#5.68xx10^11#

Explanation:

1 billion#=10^9#.
568 billion#=568xx10^9#

Now, you need to make the number being multiplied by #10^x# a number between 0 and 10. To do this, divide 568 by 100 to get 5.68, but to keep the same value of the overall number, you need to multiply #10^9# by 100. This is the same as doing #10^9xx10^2=10^11#
