    1 mole of decane contains avagadro's number of molecules or 6.023 x 10^23 molecules. So 8.01 moles contains : \[8.01\times 6.023\times 10^{23} molecules\]

    But each molecule of decane contains 22 atoms of hydrogen so multiply the above answer by 22 to get the atoms of hydrogen.

    Perhaps you entered your answer in the wrong form or didn't pay attention to significant digits.

    I got 1061.37 x 10^23 which would be 1.06 x 10^26

    Three significant digits are all we are entitled to.
