For $58,200,000,000., move the decimal point to the left until it is to the right of the first non-zero digit (5). Multiply by 10 raised to the power of the number of digits moved (10). So the answer is

5.82*10^{10}

I will leave you to do the second one. Post your answer for checking if you wish.
