a gas bulb is connected to an open end manometer. the pressure in the bulb is .355 torr MORE than atmospheric pressure. If the manometer is filled with mineral oil (density .888 g/cm^3) then what wil be the difference in height between the two sides of the manometer? (density of mercury is 13.6 g/cm^3)

the answer is 5.44, but why?
