# 0.0039 * 10^(-2) in scientific notation is

## 0.000039

## no!

That is not scientific notation.

0.0039 * 10^(-2)

= 3.9 * 10^-5

## To express 0.0039 * 10^(-2) in scientific notation, you can move the decimal point two places to the right to get the number between 1 and 10.

This gives us 3.9.

Since we moved the decimal point two places to the right, we need to multiply the 3.9 by 10 raised to the power of -2 to compensate.

Therefore, 0.0039 * 10^(-2) in scientific notation is 3.9 * 10^(-2).

## To express the number 0.0039 * 10^(-2) in scientific notation, we need to determine the coefficient and the exponent.

The coefficient is obtained by removing any leading or trailing zeros from the number 0.0039, which gives us 3.9.

The exponent is determined by the power of 10 that needs to be applied to the coefficient to obtain the original number. In this case, the number is multiplied by 10^(-2), which means we need to move the decimal point two places to the right.

So, 0.0039 * 10^(-2) in scientific notation is expressed as 3.9 * 10^(-4).
