Hi hope somebody can help(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Have some simple calculations to do for surveying (see attachment) but not sure what the output is im getting

Its not homework its practice really .....the formulas are given so its really just a matter of figuring out what the output is I guess not sure

Been 20 years since Ive done maths anywhere near this so forgive me if this is simple for everyone

Trying to figure out the tension calculation for example

I do the following in calculator (65-50) x 28.134/1.905X2.07x10^11

The answer I get is

1.070181445X10^-9

But I have no idea what that means im guessing its 1.07mm????? Or have I done it all wrong

Can anybody help?
