It is not clear how they want the answer presented. If you rounded that to the nearest tenth, the answer would be 0. The answer to one significant figure is 0.005. With four significant figures (the same as 562.0), the answer is 0.03538

That last number should be 0.005338, but as Ms. Sue has already stated, since they say want it to the nearest tenth, the answer is 0.
It is a kind of trick question. An engineer would not round off a number to get zero when there are significant figures available that indicate the answer is finite.
