I need to divide 84.38 cubic meters by 20.

The answer I'm getting is 30039.1418?

That does not look right?

What am I doing wrong?

Much thanks for the help?

good point there Wilmer, sorry.

I'm working on an assignment to design a bird cage and its almost done.

I just need to provide the cubic space per bird and there are 20 of them.

The total volume is 84.38m cubed.

I did figure out where I was going wrong.

The I was entering into the calculator 84.38m CUBED (<-- wong) divided by 20.

I should have just been entering 84.38 divided by 20 =

Anyway, arrived at the right answer. [FONT=&quot]4.219m

Much thanks anyway.

Glad I found this forum!

The right answer might have units of \(\displaystyle m^3\) and not \(\displaystyle m\).
