Is this right??? Uc entitlement

Hi everyone, I'm currently in the process of applying for universal credit for both my fiancé and I. I spoke to a benefits advisor from citizens advice this afternoon which wasn't very helpful because she basically told me everything that was on the website, and I could've found out more from the website. She sent me an email afterwards with an estimated calculation of how much both my fiancé's and I would be entitled to. I am so confused! I've put a screenshot below of what she sent me. I understand calculation 1, and I understand that calculation 2 is for being in the lcwra category which is what we're going for as my partner is disabled and unable to work. But where has this  £830.51 come from??? Is this a typo? Does she mean monthly and not weekly? I don't even know if this is for both of us or for just my fiancé. Her email is a no reply one so I can't ask and the number she called on was a private number so I can't even call. Can anyone help?
