You got some serious studying to do then

460000 = 4.6 * 10^5

multiply that by 9.3 * 10^7

and you get 42.78 * 10^12

But that's not scientific notation. We need to make it

4.278 * 10^13

You can do the rounding needed.

That may be the answer, but they specifically asked you to use scientific notation.
