Work Step by Step

$$\frac{4.8\times10^{-2}}{2.4\times10^{6}}$$ Regroup like terms then simplify $$=(\frac{4.8}{2.4})(\frac{10^{-2}}{10^{6}})$$ When dividing exponential expressions with the same non-zero base, subtract the exponent of the denominator from the exponent of the numerator. $$=2\times10^{(-2-6)}$$ $$=2\times10^{-8}$$
