34. Plug the equation into an EXCEL spreadsheet
If you have any doubt about the answer to this equation then plug it into a cell in an EXCEL spreadsheet exactly as you've typed it here, ie:

= 8.86 + 1 * 10^3 / 3.610 * 10^3

when you hit 'ENTER' you get the answer (which is 277017.17 rounded off to two decimal places)

The calculations are done in the following sequence:

= 8.86 + 1 * 10^3 / 3.610 * 10^3
= 8.86 + 1000/3.610 * 1000
= 8.86 + 277.008 * 1000
= 8.86 + 277008
= 277017.17
