(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Carry out these operations as if they were calculations of experimental results, and express each answer in the correct units and with the correct number of significant figures:

(d) (7.8 m - 0.34 m) / (1.15s + 0.82 s)

2. Relevant equations

V=d/t

3. The attempt at a solution

(7.8 m - 0.34 m) / (1.15 s + 0.82 s)

(7.46 m) / (1.97 s)

3.79 m/s

It tells me the answer is 0.76 m/s :\. I double checked and this is what they say is the right answer.
