    Do you know the formula for density?

    Correct. So what is the mass of the silver sphere? And what is the volume of the silver sphere?

    would I take 1144.3 *260.5 to find the density of the silver?

    260 mL is not the volume of the piece of silver - the difference in the change from the volume before the object was placed in the water (242 mL) and the final volume (260 mL) is the volume of the object
