Answer

$6 \times 10^{7}$

Work Step by Step

Convert each number to scientific notation to find: $=\dfrac{3 \times 10^{4}}{5 \times 10^{-4}}$ Divide the corresponding parts to find: $=(3 \div 5) \times (10^{4} \div 10^{-4}) \\=0.6 \times 10^{4-(-4)} \\=0.6 \times 10^{4+4} \\=0.6 \times 10^{8} \\=6 \times 10^{8-1} \\=6 \times 10^{7}$
