Three, so the answer would be 3.96. Always use the number with the smallest amount of significant figures to determine the amount of significant figures will be in the solutio…n.
3 of them.
You're asked to find the area of a room that's 4.56 m long and 5.668 m wide How many significant figures should you show in your answer?
3 significant figures. The rule is that the number of digits in your answer should not exceed the lowest number of digits of all the values used to derive the answer.
Four. When the decimal point is expressed, trailing zeros are significant.
It makes the calculation more accurate.
I would generally suggest using the most significant digits in the question as a reflection of the level of detail they want. If they wanted more detail (assuming 3.14 repres…ents the constant pi), then they would have listed pi to the significant digits necessary
You should always report sig figures at the same level as they are stated in the question. In this case, you would report to the meter. in this case 311,604 m.
When multiplying or dividing two numbers how many significant figures should there be in the answer?
The least number of significant figures in any number of theproblem determines the number of significant figures in the answer.
5 since 1.0400 has 5 significant figures. when dividing or multiplying go with the number with the smaller significant figures.
It depends on the number of significant figures from two numbers you are multiplying. But when multiplying you use the same number of significant figures from the numbers you …are multiplying with the LEAST number of significant figures. Example: 92,873.239 * 2 = 200,000 (because the number 2 has only 1 significant figure even tho 92,873.239 has 8 significant figures your answer still only has 1 significant figure)
No, just one.
Four. When the decimal point is expressed, trailing zeros are significant. Leading zeros are never significant.
There are 3 sig figs becasue when you multiply two numbers you take the same number of sig figs as the multiple with the fewest sig figs. 0.280 and 3.70 both have 3 sig figs.
2300.m has four significant figures.
