Just pointing out that 93.7x10^5 is not in scientific notation because the coefficients have to be between 1 and 10. I'm going to change it into the correct format (9.37x10^6).Okay, well we just have to multiply the coefficients together, add the exponents together, mash our answer together, then convert it into scientific notation if we need to.(9.37x10^6)(3.0x10^4)Coefficient9.37 x 3.0 = 28.11Exponent5 + 4 = 928.11x10^9 <-- (not in scientific notation)2.811x10^10 <-- (is now in scientific notation)... Well, my answer is not one of the answer choices. I'm fairly certain my math is correct, so the answer is most likely 2.811x10^10. The two previous users who answered before me are correct.~ Azaler
