Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

first I converted from C to F and got 31.111111 then I added 273.15 to get the answer in Kelvin. My professor prefers to use 273.15 K rather than just 273 K. The answer I got was 304.25 K and in significant figures it is 304.3 K or 3.0 x 10^2 K.

Please tell me if my answer has the correct significant figures.
