$1.64\times10^{-5}$
We are given that to convert from cubic inches to cubic meters, multiply by .0000164 Step 1: To write this number in scientific notation, we move the decimal point to the right until the original number is 1.64. Step 2: Since the original number was less than 1, we moved the decimal by 5 negative places. In other words, we will raise 10 to a power of -5. Now, we write the product of the two numbers found in Step 1 and Step 2. $1.64\times10^{-5}$
