The problem is:

(8.86 + 1.0 X 10^-3) / 3.610 X 10^-3

Well I got 2.73 X 10^-3 as an answer, but I know for a fact that this is wrong because my teacher said it was.

Your teacher is right.

What do you get when you add

8.86 + 1.0 X 10^-3 = 8.86 + .001 ?

What do you get when you divide that sum by 3.610 X 10^-3 = .003610 ?

(I didn't get your answer.)

(8.86 + 1.0 * 10^-3)/3.610 *10^-3

=8.861/0.00361

=2454.570637

=2454.57
