To do scientific notation, place the decimal point to the right of the FIRST digit, then place a x 10, finally raise the power of 10 to a number to mentally move the decimal point to the correct number of places.
24388 = 2.4388 x 10^4
Here is a site that will give you the necessary information on significant figures.
