Numbers Code Challenge

Trying to do this numbers challenge.

Using exponential notation, create a variable named "GermanyGDP" and assign the number 3.4 trillion (3400000000000) to it.

<script src="viewer.js"> </script>

I don't have a clue about that math language nor did they give any clues(that i noticed) in the lessons.

please help!

It like scientific notation... but in java script its a little bit diffrent...

so one million 1,000,000 would be 1E6; because there are six spaces after the first number.

var GermanyGDP = 1E6;

So do the same with 3.4 trillion (3400000000000) = 3.4E?

Thanks for the support Nelson, i needed someone to explain that two me.

var GermanyGDP = 34E11
