Work Step by Step

We are given the number $0.000362$ To write this number in scientific notation, we must move the decimal point to the right until the new number has a value between 1 and 10. Therefore, we move the decimal place between 3 and 6, which is 4 decimal places from the original decimal point. Since the original number was less than 1, the exponent count will be negative. The new number is $3.62\times10^{-4}$
