Significant figures has to do with accuracy 1.3456X2.8 = 3.76768 the above assumes exact values, with inexact values the result can't have any more digits then the least 1.3456X2.8 = 3.8 rounded up

\[ 50,000\to 50\times 10^3 \]

If you have \[ \$5,000,000 \]Then you aren't going to worry about \(\$5\).

I still don't understand. =S

You'll be concerned with about \(\$1,000\)

\[ \$5,000,\color{blue}{000} \]The blue digits are insignificant because they are chump change. \[ \$5,000,\color{blue}{000}\\ \$5,000,\color{blue}{980}\\ \$5,000,\color{blue}{032}\\ \]These are all pretty much the same since they're relatively small.

So you'd just round it to \[ \$5,000k \]

Sigfigs are number that are important, so they can't be rounded.

Some numbers are put in place just for the sake of showing order of magnitude. For example: \[ \color{blue}{0.00}5 \]Here we need to write the \(0\)s, but they are not significant.

1.23 has three significant values 1.00 has three significant values, zero must be shown to show accrarcy

Another example might be\[ 10,0\color{blue}{00} \]

Any digit which is not \(0\) is significant, but any \(0\) may just be there for the sake of showing order of magnitude.

When you have \(101\), it is clear that the \(0\) between the \(1\)'s is significant.

Significant figures are generally used with scientific notation 1.25X10^5 has three significant figures

All zeros between non-zeros are significant. All zeroes to the left of the left most non-zero are not significant. For zeros to the right of the right most non-zero, it is ambiguous.

1.280X10^6 has four significant figures
anonymous
  • anonymous
You can get rid of this ambiguity by using scientific notation, in which all figures are significant.

So while \(100\) may have \(1\), \(2\), or \(3\) significant figures. We know that \(\underbrace{1.0}_{2}\times 10^2\) has only \(2\) significant figures.
