$8.71 \times 10^{-2}\ oz$

Work Step by Step

Using our knowledge of units, we find: $ 24.7 \times 3.52 \times 10^{-3} oz$ To convert to scientific notation, move the decimal to the right or left, counting the number of times that you do so, until you get a number that is at least 1 but that is less than 10. If you moved the decimal right, the number of times the decimal is moved will be negative, while moving left yields a positive number. Then, raise 10 to that number. This gives: $8.71 \times 10^{-2}\ oz$
