## Intermediate Algebra: Connecting Concepts through Application

$2.36\times10^{-13}$
Step 1: Scientific Notation includes only one non-zero digit in front of the decimal point. Step 2: For $0.000000000000236$, the decimal point must be moved 13 times to the right in order to ensure that their is only one non-zero digit in front of the decimal point. Step 3: Therefore, $0.000000000000236=2.36\times10^{-13}$.
