This is the excercise: (363 × 1.48)/3.51.79 + 6.1 × 10^−1
However, my question is unralated the answer. Does 10^1 out as a significant figure? and if it does, it would count as 1 digit, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Write 10^{1} as a decimal, then it should be obvious to you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[(\frac{ (363*1.48) }{ 3.51.79 })+6.1*10^{1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\bf a^{{\color{red} n}} \implies \cfrac{1}{a^{\color{red} n}}\qquad \qquad \cfrac{1}{a^{\color{red} n}}\implies a^{{\color{red} n}} \\ \quad \\ % negative exponential denominator a^{{\color{red} n}} \implies \cfrac{1}{a^{\color{red} n}} \qquad \qquad \cfrac{1}{a^{\color{red} n}}\implies \cfrac{1}{\frac{1}{a^{\color{red} n}}}\implies a^{{\color{red} n}} \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so does count as significant, and it is 1 digit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My last question is ames Street, QB 196869, led Texas to the National Championship in 1969. His 20 straight victories as a starter are still the best in SWC history. How many significant digits does 20 represent? 1. 1 2. 2 3. impossible to determine 4. 0 5. infinite

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know 20 has 1 digit, but how do i know is not a tricky question and they mean 20.00000 which has infinite digits

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I meant 20 has 2 digits

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You interpret 20 as 20 not 20.00000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And they're asking for the number of significant digits the number 20 has.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Decimals apply mostly with measurement. 20 in this case is the result of "counting" not "measurement".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Technically, counting is a form of measurement, but you wouldn't use decimals for counting whole numbers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But if it was a measurement i would've being like 20.000..... right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, it was actually infinate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but what you're saying make sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is one of those "I believe button" type concepts because logically it doesn't make sense, at least not to me, but apparently, "Exact numbers have an infinite number of significant digits".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would have picked 1 significant digit which would have been supposedly wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, i get what you are saying, and it makes perfectly sense. On tuesday I will tell my teacher to explain me more about this. I think it is a tricky question
