    Which question...? Also in your pic the page bends too much so it's hard to read the left side.

    divide through by 0.00012 before square rooting as 0.00012 is not squared --- only the x is squared and you should get 1 value and then think about the limitations of your calculator to do with square roots to get the second

    But 0.00012(1000692)^2 \approx 120166138
