    -6.043 and -6.430 turn into -6043 and -6430 when you multiply both by 1000 (or move the decimal point 3 spots to the right)

    uh sure, don't really understand the whole medal system, but I guess it doesn't hurt to give you one back

    to be clear, the more negative a number is, the smaller it is. -10 is smaller than -1. Think temperature if that helps -10 is colder (lower temperature ) than -1 In your case -6.430 is more negative than -6.043 In other words, -6.043 is larger so you did this correctly.
