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

The calculation to be performed is: 84.037 * (956/13.2 - 179/28.5 + 892/16.4)

The correct answer is: 1.013 x 10^4 but I don't see why this is. I got 3 sig figs in my answer, not 4. I have a test tomorrow at 7 PM - help before then is highly appreciated. This is the only problem I can't figure out.

Thank you.

84.037 * (956/13.2 - 179/28.5 + 892/16.4)=

84.037 * (72.4 - 6.28 + 54.4)

= 1.01 x 10^4
