The concentration of an enzyme is given by this equation

C = (A . VT) / (f.VS)

where     A = absorbance on a spectrometer
                VT= total volume
                Vs= sample volume
               f= a constant which is specific to the substance

Find C in scientific notation if A = 0.285
                                                    VT= 3.1
                                                    Vs= 0.1
                                        and       f = 6.22 x 103
