3.8*108/1.2*1015 = (3.8/1.2)*108*10-15 = (3.8/1.2)*108-15 = (3.8/1.2)*10-7

$$\left({\frac{{\mathtt{3.8}}}{{\mathtt{1.2}}}}\right){\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{10}}}^{\left(-{\mathtt{7}}\right)} = {\mathtt{0.000\: \!000\: \!316\: \!666\: \!666\: \!7}}$$

or $$3\frac{1}{6}*10^{-7}$$

Oh, I see how you did that Alan.

Forget my old answer.
