sig figs?

4. ILKGA

significant figures

5. TheBatman

WHy 5? Is it because there is a total of 5 numbers? If so, that's incorrect. D-Do you have notes on this topic? Maybe a textbook?

6. praveenroyg

ALL zeroes between non-zero numbers are ALWAYS significant.

19. TheBatman

You do know why it is 4?
