Can you add a link to the quiz/challenge?

Philip Graf upsss, i believe the problem come from my data connection but thanks Steven Parker here the question : In an ecommerce database we have a products table with the columns id, name, category, description, price and stock_count. The price is in USD. Write a query that returns the product name and price in Pounds Sterling (GBP). The current exchange rate is 1.4 USD to every 1 GBP. Alias the calculated price to price_gbp. Round to two decimal places.

I'm not sure where you're getting the values for your math, but it does say round to 2 decimal places. So, based on what's specified in the challenge, I'd create this query:

SELECT name, ROUND(price / 1.4, 2) as price_gbp FROM products;

thanks, I already solve the question either, I only wrong put the values but thanks for your helping

Why did you divide price by 1.4 instead of multiplication?
