9. 0.3287g x 45.2g =
13. 0.258mL &divide; 0.36105mL =
10. 125.5 kg + 52.68 kg + 2.1 kg =
14. (1250 cal – (234.207 &divide; 52.69 cal)) =
11. 52.8 Pa + 3.0025 Pa =
235.4 Pa
15. 78.26 L - 89.50 L =
678.2 L + 9511 L
12.(0.12g + 5.16g) x (45.56g - 93.0g) =
16. 68.32ns+ (-1.001ns) + (-0.00367ns) + (-678.1ns)=
17. Calculate the volume of a cube that is 3.4cm high, 4.75 cm wide and 2.145 cm long. (Answer should be in
