a = 10.55

8.  3.5932 = 12.91

 1 + 2 1

1.291 x 10 5.26 x 10-1

= (0.7746 x 10-1) +290.1901 x 10)

= 0.07746

+ 3.802

3.87946

3.87946 = 3.879

= 1.9695

= 1.970(4s.f)

0.6638 6.638 x 10-1 0.1500 x 10 = 1.5000

0.833 8.33 x 10-1 0.1200 x 10 = 1.200

= 1/3 (2 (105) + (1.2))

= 1/3 (3 + 6)

= 1/3 x 9 = 3

10.  3×1.485 + 13×6.410

= 4.455 + 83.33

= 87.785

ALT

30/6.735 + 130/1.56 = 30 x 0.1485 + 130x 0.641

= 4.455 + 83.33
