Convert 29.8 atm into torr
I did this 29.8(1/760) and got 22648 but its not going online as correct

When you do this type problems ALWAYS check the units to see if that works out to what you want. For example, if I do you calculation this way
29.8 atm x (1 atm/760 torr) = the units are atm*atm/torr = (atm^2/torr) which is not what you wanted; i.e., you wanted torr as the unit. See my numbers below.
29.8 atm x (760 torr/1 atm) = ?
The units are atm x (torr/atm) = torr.
If you do this you won't make the mistake of using a conversion factor wrong.
