E) 124 g
The answer is A.....But I still can't figure it out....I keep getting D as an answer..

bobpursley,
mass= density*volume

drwls,
You are dividing density by volume instead of multiplying. BobPursley gave your the correct formula to use.

Damon,
check your units
2.70 g/cm^3 * 126.5 cm^3
units are
g cm^3/cm^3
the cm^3 cancel
and you are left with g, grams
If you do it upside down somehow, you will end up with cm^6 which you know right off is wrong.
