$7.613\times10^{-3}$
We are given the number $.007613$. Step 1: To write this number in scientific notation, we move the decimal point to the right until the original number is 7.613. Step 2: Since the original number was less than 1, we moved the decimal by 3 negative places. In other words, we will raise 10 to a power of -3. Now, we write the product of the two numbers found in Step 1 and Step 2. $7.613\times10^{-3}$
