    Need some help please

    I purchased the book 100 problems in Celestial Navigation, 2nd edition. On Page 3 problem #1-. The problem is asking for the GHA of aries at 0414 LMT which is 0714 GMT. Date 5/13/93
    On page 104 is the almanac for that day, at 0700 for May 13 the GHA of aries is 336 06.0. The increment for for 14 m is 3 30.6. Total rounded up is 340. Subtracting out the Long. 50 15 W The LHA of aries should be 289 or 290. The book say the LHA of aries is 294. Is there a mistake in the book or am I doing something wrong?
    I know that Kenneth Gebhart contributes to this group. Maybe he can tell me who is correct.
    Thank you,
