    The number of seconds in 7 days is 7\times24\times60\times60=604800
    The total cost is then 16.07\times604800= 9719136
    In scientific notation we have one digit in front of the decimal place and multiply it by 10 to the power of something, so the answer in scientific notation would be
    9.719136\times 10^6 or sometimes 9.719136{\ } E6. You can round it to as many decimal places as you like.
