Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I did 5G.13 right and it's identical to this one. The book says the answer is -27 but I'm getting -2.7. Why am I one decimal off?

I'm almost certain that this is an error in the textbook; I've done that same problem twice and I've gotten your answer twice. You may want to see Prof. Lavelle's updated solutions manual errors on his website to see if this is one of the errors. But I can assure you that your work is correct.

Thank you so much! For some reason I didn't see it in his solutions manual errors

I was getting the same solution over and over again as well and couldn't figure out why. This helps a lot. Thank you.
