    (A) 4.03 x 10^14

    Step-by-step explanation:

    403,000,000,000,000

    Scientific notation is of the form

    a * 10 ^b

    where a is a number from 1 to a number less than 10

    Put the decimal in the number

    403,000,000,000,000.

    We need to move the decimal 14 places to the left to get the number to be between 1 and 10

    4.03000000000000 so the b is 14

    Since we moved it to the left b is positive

    We can drop the extra zeros at the end (after the last nonzero digit)

    4.03 * 10^14
