    I'm multiplying 5845 X 557.2

    I get two different anwers from 2 different computers. One answer is 3256834, the other one is 3373734. Both are formatted exactly the same.

    What's going on?

    My guess would be that on the computer displaying 3373734, you are multiplying by 577.2, and not 557.2 ...

    3373734 / 5845 = 577.2

    Typo?
