Answer:

#0.012=1.2xx10^(-2)#

Explanation:

#0.012# written in scientific notation would be #1.2xx10^(-2)#. #1.2# is called the coefficient and can only have a single digit of 1-9 inclusive in front of the decimal. The exponent on the base 10 is #-2# because if you were to expand this number you would move the decimal back to the left two places.
