First, if you have a question, it is much better to put it in as a separate post in <Post a New Question> rather than attaching it to a previous question, where it is more likely to be overlooked.

the answer as given is the correct scientific notation, but the question wanted a whole number times a power of ten.
That would be 24*10^4
My guess is that the real exercise does not specify a whole number, but a number n such that 1.0 <= n < 10.0
