    Nevermind, I think the answer is 192, but how do I express this in one sig fig?

    192 in one s.f. is:
    round to 200, then
    2 x 10^2 or 2E2. I obtained 196 and not 192 BUT I may be using different numbers for kcal vs grams.
    I used 4 kcal/g carb
    4 kcal/g protein
    9 kcal/g fat.
