Because you used an inaccurate value when you converted psf to psi as ssato already indicated. Use more decimals and you get the result accurate to more than the two decimals as shown in your sheet:
You can't expect the results to be the same up to nine decimals if your calculation uses a value which is just rounded to 2 decimals!
Hi,
5*w*L^4/384/E/I
Both E and I have units that have not been added on the worksheet.
Cheers

Hi,
The number of significant digits in the unit conversion for "a" seems to be low.
