    \[3.51\frac{ g }{ cm^3 }\]

    So now I have \[3.51\frac{ g }{ cm^3 }=\frac{ 4289.6 }{ volume }\]

    Round your answer to the nearest hundredth. calculate to 3 decimal places. look at the 3rd place if 5 or more add 1 to the 2nd decimal place. if the 3rd decimal place is less than 5 just drop it.

    correct unit of measure for mass is grams so in the formula the g's will cancel out

    No worries, now I multiply by 4289.6 on both sides right?

    You plug in the values you're given into the equation.

    No, you multiply the volume on both sides.

    Then you divide both sides by 3.51 to get your answer.

    you should find out what he/she was confused about. you are incorrect because the directions said to the nearest hundredth. means to 2 decimal places. now both of you should review the thread.
