    @lDK I'm getting 8.62 as well. So there's probably a typo somewhere.

    I'm thinking it's the "round after each step" thing. Like they want sin 38° rounded to 0.62, then multiply that by 14

    you'll have to compute sin(38) = 0.619... = 0.62 then multiply that by 14, yeah like peachpi is saying
