A Density Question for Chemistry

A gold statue has a volume of about 1.5L. How many cm^3 is this


my answer: 1,500cm^3 = rounded to 1 significant figure is (2,000cm^3)


apparently its wrong but I don’t know how^^^


This then leads to the following.....based on the last two questions, what is the mass of the gold statue?


Density=19.3 (I did get that right)

M=DxV

so I did 19.3(2000) = 38,600 g/cm^6 which rounded to the significant figure is (40,000g/cm^6)


which is also wrong^^^



Am I wrong? Am I rounding to the wrong figure?
