I converted 789,032 calories to Kilo Joules, and I got 3,301,309,888. I feel like this number is way to big. I set up the proportion like this: 789,032 x 4.184J/1c x 1000 kj/1J. Was this incorrect?

I have to convert inches to 250 cm.My book states the expression to calculate this as 250 cm x 1in/2.54 cm. I followed through to divide, and got 98.425, which following the rules of significantdigits, would equal 98, right? 250 only has 2 sig digs, it'd have to be 98. But...

I am supposed to add up these numbers, using the significant digits rules. 150 76.9 209 .036 I got 435.936. Following the sig. digs. rules, it would be 435.9, right? How does this then equal 440 as my science books says? Thank you so much.

Kudos to you, GuruBlue! Writeacher, are you a creationist or a proponent of Intelligent Design or a creation scientist or a transformist or some other close variation of any of these that all boils down to mtyhology anyway by any chance . . .

You could automatically eliminate letter A and letter E as being too extreme (outliers). Look up Neolithic Revoultion or Agricultural Revolution.

You can eliminate some of these safely. It is not E by definition. A was a means toward expansion, so not that either. C has to do with the buildup of naval power for the sake of said purposes, so no. Either B or D.
