ok what about rounding to sig figs?
0.00034159 to three digits? how do i do that

- Vocaloid

well,
0.00034159 has 5 sig figs, so we look at the third digit from the right (1). then we look at 5 (the next digit) to see whether to keep 1 or round to 2. since it's 5 we round 1 to 2 like so:
0.00342

- anonymous

ok but what happened to the third zero?

- Vocaloid

oh whoops
0.000342

- anonymous

haha ok thats what i thought
the next one is
103.351 * 10^2 to 4 digits.

- Vocaloid

yup, but don't forget the 10^2

- anonymous

ok so i keep that. Next one is:
17.9915 to 5 digits
17.992

- Vocaloid

yup
