Spoiler!
I multiplied pi x phi x 2, but the result is being rejected. What am I doing wrong?

Spoiler!
you have to pay around with significant digits and rounding up. I can't remember, but I had problems on this one too. Keep plugging and chugging. Try rounding up or not, using only the amount of digits you can, or not. It's tricky but you have the right equation.

No rounding and make sure you're reading the second word correctly. I wasn't at first.

I've tried every combination from 19.731 through 19.744... can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong please?

Spoiler!
At least one of your three factors is wrong.

Spoiler!
Probably only one factor was incorrect. 19.739 is 2*pi^2. In the case of this puzzle, you should have 2*pi*phi, where phi is the golden ratio.

The first number is not pi rounded to 3 decimal places, it is the first 3 decimal digits of pi

Only 0.001 different but makes all the difference!
