    do i round that to two sig figs or subtract first?

  11. ChrisV

    so the first answer is 3400

  12. ChrisV

    then i take 302.17 - 3400

  15. ChrisV
    • 2 years ago

    so -3079.83 which would be 3080 in sig fig?

    3389.67 oops

  26. ChrisV

    then i take 320.17 and subtract 3400

  27. ChrisV
    • 2 years ago

    since 3400 has no decimal spots i round to the nearest 1 spot

  28. ChrisV

    oh so the two sig figs i get when dividing applies still after i subtract?

    for some reason i thought when i rounded to 3400 i was done with the division part
