but the solution options don't come anywhere close to this. What am I doing wrong? I think I am making a similar mistake in Q5 becasue I get 4.715 for that becasue it is simply the solution above *1000 becasue M=1000.
The course is currently is session at edX, and there are active discussions in their forum there, so you may want to take a look.
