6 $\times$ $10^{-3}$, or 0.006 in decimal form.
(0.000002)(3000) = Remove parentheses. 0.000002 $\times$ 3000 = We write 0.00002 as 2 $\times$ $10^{-6}$. We write 3000 as 3 $\times$ $10^{3}$. So, we have: 2 $\times$ $10^{-6}$ $\times$ 3 $\times$ $10^{3}$ = Group similar terms. (2 $\times$ 3) $\times$ ($10^{-6}$ $\times$ $10^{3}$ ) = Simplify. 6 $\times$ $10^{-3}$, or 0.006 in decimal form.
