This is the excercise: (363 × 1.48)/3.5-1.79 + 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?

Write 10^{-1} as a decimal, then it should be obvious to you.

\[(\frac{ (363*1.48) }{ 3.5-1.79 })+6.1*10^{-1}\]

\(\bf a^{-{\color{red} n}} \implies \cfrac{1}{a^{\color{red} n}}\qquad \qquad \cfrac{1}{a^{\color{red} n}}\implies a^{-{\color{red} n}} \\ \quad \\ % negative exponential denominator a^{{\color{red} n}} \implies \cfrac{1}{a^{-\color{red} n}} \qquad \qquad \cfrac{1}{a^{-\color{red} n}}\implies \cfrac{1}{\frac{1}{a^{\color{red} n}}}\implies a^{{\color{red} n}} \)

so does count as significant, and it is 1 digit

My last question is ames Street, QB 1968-69, 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

I know 20 has 1 digit, but how do i know is not a tricky question and they mean 20.00000 which has infinite digits
gahm8684
  • gahm8684
I meant 20 has 2 digits
Hero
  • Hero
You interpret 20 as 20 not 20.00000
Hero
  • Hero
And they're asking for the number of significant digits the number 20 has.

  • Hero
Decimals apply mostly with measurement. 20 in this case is the result of "counting" not "measurement".
Hero
  • Hero
Technically, counting is a form of measurement, but you wouldn't use decimals for counting whole numbers.
gahm8684
  • gahm8684
But if it was a measurement i would've being like 20.000..... right?
gahm8684
  • gahm8684
no, it was actually infinate
gahm8684
  • gahm8684
but what you're saying make sense
Hero
  • Hero
This 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".
Hero
  • Hero
I would have picked 1 significant digit which would have been supposedly wrong.
gahm8684
  • gahm8684
Yeah, 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
