Homework Help: Chemistry

An open-ended mercury manometer is used to measure the pressure exerted by a trapped gas as shown in the figure. Atmospheric pressure is 750. mmHg. What is the pressure (in mmHg or torr) of the trapped gas if h =23 cm?

I got 893.462, but that wasn't right. Can someone help please?
