Thanks for building this LO. I will definitely include it in my course. The process is great.

This is an excellent presentation of the process. I am having a problem getting the same correct answer as the exercise chart needs to complete the 3rd exercise, in the calculated column, the correct answer demanded to advance is 99.92, but I come out with 99.91 every time, on different calculators. My students get the same result. Is 99.92 accurate ? ... Thanks !
