Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Lauren on Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 3:34pm.

The freezing point of ethanol is -114.6 C and its Kf value is 2.00 C/m. What is the freezing point for the solution prepared by dissolving 50.0 g of glycerin (C3H8O3) in 200.0 g ethanol?

I used Change in temp=Kfm
I calculated m to be 2.1736.
I ended up the answer of -118.4 C but the answer is apparently -120. I'm a few numbers off, can someone explain to me where I went wrong?
