(2.34+7.9)/4.25 would this be 2.4 or 2.41?? would you do 2.34+7.9= 10.24/4.25=2.41 or would you say it's 2.4 b/c 7.9 only has 2 sig figs. or would you say 2.34+7.9 = 10.2/4.25=2.40

calculate the energy required to raise the temp. of 170.0 g of silver (specific heat = .24 joules/celsius times grams) from 273K to 301K. I know the equation and I got 1142.4 joules but need to get to 2 sig figs, so I converted it to 1.1 x 10^4 which is right, but it doesn't ...
