The e is an exponent, or 10 to the power of the number afterwards.

In other words, a 1 with as many zeros as the number afterwards after the 1.

In this case, a 1 with 16 zeros after, or 10 000 000 000 000 000.

The more standard notation of course is 1016, or 10^16, but 10e16 is also fairly standard.

 

So that's a multiplier; your number is 2.2848 times 1016, or 22 848 000 000 000 000
