    Answer:

    The difference in height is 5.36 × 10^{2} feet

    Step-by-step explanation:

    First, we need to get the difference in height in the given units of “feet”.

    The difference in height of the two buildings is 1,483 – 947 = 536 feet

    536 feet can now be expressed in standard scientific notation of the form

    A × 10^n, where A is a number between 1 and 10, and “n” is a positive integer (n > 0)

    So, 536 feet = 5.36 × 100  = 5.36 × 10^{2} feet in standard scientific notation
