  • $\begingroup$ If you wanted to write it out in standard notation, you would need to move the decimal point over to the right 367 times, adding zeros as needed. In standard notation, it is: 40938376200000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000.0 $\endgroup$

$4.09383762e367 = 4.09383762 \cdot 10^{367}$. This notation is called "E-notatation" and is often used in calculators to shorten the expressions.
