Please do not tag your question onto someone else's because it will give the impression that the question has been answered, and your own question will not get much attention either.
Please make a new post.
Thank you.

1.
The least precise number has 4 significant figures, so the answer can be presented to 4 or 5 significant figures for intermediate calculations, and in this particular case where the least significant number is a small number).
885.75 g + 10.151 g  25.50 g
=870.40
=8.7040e2
Give a try to #2 and #3. Post for confirmation if you wish.

for #2 it's
((2.70000e2 cm)^3) / ((1.20e3 cm)^2) = 13.66875 centimeters
