Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now I have \[3.51\frac{ g }{ cm^3 }=\frac{ 4289.6 }{ volume }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Round 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you 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.
