For students, you can rewrite 1.01 million as 1,010,000.  To put this into scientific notation, move the decimal point to the left 6 times, so it will be 1.01 * (10^6).  The same concept works for the expenses as well.  However many times you move the decimal point over becomes the exponent for 10.

a. Students: 1.01 * (10^6)

Expenses: 1.17 * (10^4)

It's asking for the total education budget, so you will have to multiply the number of students by the expenses per student.  When typing the values into the calculator, it may be easier to type the numbers out (1,010,000*11,700). Since there are only 3 significant figures for students and expenses, the final answer will need to have only three significant figures as well.

b. IN ed budget = Students * Expenses

IN ed budget = {1.10 * (10^6)} * {1.17 * (10^4)}

IN ed budget = 11,817,000,000

IN ed budget = \$1.18 * (10^10)

c. The IN education budget is \$1.18 * (10^10).
