1. You are ignoring units.

mass of iron is in grams.
atomic mass is in grams.
amu is in kg.
So you have an incompatability in units.

number atoms= massiron/(massofeach atom)

where mass ofeach atom=55.85u*mass/u

so fix the units to be compatable, and you have it.

2. that is my problem i am not sure how to fix the units. Do I divide the grams by 1000 so i would have 0.007927 grams then multiply by 55.85? Thank you so much for any help.
