    I know I have the wrong answer cause the eel egg is meant to be larger but I can't see what I've done wrong?

    Any help will be much appreciated!

    Probably because you're dividing the human egg volume by the eel egg volume when it should be the other way around.

    Nope. Im wrong as well. Can't think straight.
    You should convert the mm into um before you carry it out.
    This is what I did:

    0.55x1000= 550um.
    4/3 x pi x 550^3 / 1.8 x 10^6 =387 times larger.
    mm^3 x 1000 isn't equal to um^3
