PLEASE HELP  MEDAL AND FAN:
Hey guys, sorry I know this isn't exactly math, but there was nobody in chemistry. I have a few questions on significant figures and I was wondering if you could check my answers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well, 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
