  1. You're making this too hard.
    mass = volume x density
    mass = 15.0 g
    density = 0.875 g/mL
    Substitute and solve for volume.

    volume = 34.6 mL
    density = 0.875 g/mL.
    Substitute and solve for mass.

  4. What user drbob22 is trying to explain is that if you follow the equation you get your answer for instance on part b. he explains what the volume and the density is, if you put it in calculations you then get 30.275 round that off and your answer should be 30.3 grams.
