I also got 49.825 Ohm.
So did I, but a 50 ohm resistor is consistent with the other resistors (integers) and the error is smaller than your meter will detect. See the attachments in post #18.

Rounding errors occur ... and the TS could have been dyslexic in post 17.

The "exact" answer probably does not matter in the long run.
The reason I made the post and included solution for the unknown resistor is to show OP one approach to solving the problem.

True, and as the TS reported, they tackled a few more examples with no assistance required. I take that as a good victory for the home team in AAC Homework help.

I agree. The main goal was achieved, which is for the TS to learn something and walk away with new and improved skills.
