 2 Cyrano de Bergerac had a prominent nose. As a matter of fact, it was so large that it was often the only thing people noticed about him. If one had to choose an adjective to describe Cyrano's nose, the best would be "tremendous!" Cyrano fell in love with a beautiful young woman, but knew she could never love someone so ugly. It's a long story, but in the end, Cyrano discovered that he was wrong. The young woman did love him. Cyrano's nose was sixteen centimeters long. 1 cm = 0.39 in. How long was Cyrano's nose in inches? Round off your answer to the nearest tenth of an inch.

 6 Christian was using an electronic tuner (of his own design) to check the tuning of his cousin's guitar. He had previously tuned the guitar using a tone on a recording so that the A string vibrated at exactly 440 Hz (440 cycles per second). Now when he checked it using his tuner, the tuner indicated that the string was vibrating at 443.3 Hz. Assuming the string was actually tuned to 440 Hz, what was the percent error in his tuner? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth of a percent.
