Bonus problem for College Algebra

I thought this might be a nice bonus problem for a college algebra class.

Let A be some number. If c = log(A) and c = a+b where a is a non-negative integer and b is a decimal between zero and one, represent A in scientific notation.

Maybe a concrete form of the question would be better for students: If log(A) = 4.182, approximate A in scientific notation.
