Important General Instructions for Reporting Numerical Answers:

– Do not round intermediate calculations.

– Unless otherwise instructed, solve problems in the given units. IE: if given units are in \$K, complete your computations in these units and, as applicable, report your answer in these units (without writing “\$” or “K”).

– Do not report any numerical answer as a percent. IE: for example, write

– Report negative numbers with a leading minus sign, like this (for example):

-23.451

Not like this: (23.451).

– Note that Canvas removes trailing insignificant figures. If you type, for example, 41.350, Canvas will remove the last decimal place and record your answer as 41.35 This is fine because 41.35 = 41.350.

– Assume time is measured in years unless otherwise stated.
