Hi Michael,

In scientific notation, 2,570,000,000,000 would be written as 2.57 x 1012

This is also correct for engineering notation since the power is divisible by 3. Don't forget that the number that starts the expression needs to be between 1 and 10 (2.57 here).

Hope this helps!

Becca is correct that it would be 2.57 x 1012

Dont forget though that is another way to write these numbers. 2.57E12 is the same thing as stated above.
