The rule is that all non-zero numbers are significant numbers All zeros in between non-zero numbers are significant All zeros to the right of a decimal point are significant Zeros to the left of a decimal point are only significant if they are preceded by non-zeros numbers If you have a number with zeros to the right of non-zero numbers with no decimal point (like 4120), the 0 zero can be significant or non-significant
usually in those cases, you put a decimal place after 4120=4120. or you put it in scientific notation like this 4120=4.120*10^3
