Using this form to write a number ( x.xx * 10^yy ) is known as "scientific notation" and allows for numbers to be expressed conveniently that are very large or very small. In this problem note that you need only to shift the decimal point 3 places to the
left.

7.03*10^{-3} = 7.03 * 0.001 = 0.00703
