A light year can be written in scientific notation as 9.5 x 10^12 km.

9.461*1012 km

One light year is approximately equal to seven trillion miles. So, 23 million light years is approximately equal to 161 quintillion miles. In scientific notation, that is 1.61 x 1020 miles.

The number given in scientific notation is: 3.0*108

In the same way as the scientific notation is used elsewhere. 1 light year, for example, is 9.4607*1015 metres. 1 Planck's distance equals 1.6162*10-35 metres.
