We don't provide "answers". We help you arrive at the "answer".
Your subject stated "Am I Squaring This Right?"
Well, we would tell you if you showed us your work.
Are you trying to do
0.530.47
Your problem has "(5)" in it which does not make sense.

Why is (5) in the problem?

0.53 times 0.47 =

0.53 times 0.53 times 0.47 = 0.132023

I don't think that is stated right because you are squaring 52 and then by 47. You are not squaring all of the numbers.
