Each measurement is considered to have a certain number of what are called significant digits or significant figures ( aka sig figs or sig.digs ) . Rules for Identifying the Number of Significant Digits in a Number Rules 1)Any nonzero (digits from 1 to 9 ) digits are significant . 2)Any zeroes found between two significant digits are significant . 3)Any zeroes that are found to the right of both a significant digit and a decimal place are significant . Examples from the Rules Above According To Each Rule 1)Number 942 , with three nonzero digits , shows 3 significant digits 2)Number 50003 , with 2 nonzero digits and 3 zeroes between and significant digits , shows 5 significant digits . 3)Number 75.00 , with 2 nonzero digits and 2 zeroes that are to the right of both a significant digit and a decimal shows 4 significant digits . Always consider each rule and try memorizing them ,Practice and Memorize
you take the lowest significant figure in the equation and that is the sig fig of your answer
9.995 to 1 significant figure 9.995 to 1 significant figure
There are 3 sig-figs in 90.4. The rule is any Zero between integers is counted as a significant figure.
Significant FiguresRule 1 : Zeros must be kept to show the position of the decimal point.Rule 2 : If the first figure to be discarded is 5 or more, the previous figure is increased by 1.Rule 3 : Zeros must be retained to indicate that 0 is a significant figure.0.004738265 : - Rule 1 the part of the number 0.00 must be kept.The third significant figure is therefore 0.0047?Rule 2 the first number to be discarded is 8 therefore the previous figure is increased by 1. (3 is increased to 4)The number to 3sf is 0.00474
Yes, 0 is a significant figure
62 rounded to one significant figure is 60. 57 rounded to one significant figure is 60. 573 rounded to one significant figure is 600. 0.0573 rounded to one significant figure is 0.06. In each of these answers the 6 is the only significant figure.
Truncated to one significant figure, it's 9,000 .Rounded to one significant figure, it's 10,000.
The significant figure 2.00 has to do with the certainty of a measurement.
0.00000004 has 1 significant figure.
It has 1 significant figure.
The first significant figure of 0.000169 is the 1 and it has 3 significant figures.
1000 is written with one significant figure, with only the 1 being a significant figure.
The significant figure of 78.00100 is 78.00. It had 7 significant figures and a least significant decimal of -5.
0.004 has 1 significant figure.
1512 to 1 significant figure is 2000
4252 to 1 significant figure is 4000.
Rounded to 1 significant figure it is 0.4
9753261 to 1 significant figure is 10,000,000
1150 to 1 significant figure is 1000
4916 to 1 significant figure is 5000
The number of significant figure is 5
Rounded to one significant figure it becomes 20
When it's truncated to one significant figure . . . 20When it's rounded to one significant figure . . . . 30
0.019 to 1 significant figure is 0.02 (significant figure is counted from the left with 1st significant being the first non-zero from the left)
Two. There are rules of Significant figure is: RULE #1 - All digits 1 through 9 are significant. RULE #2 - Zero is significant when it is between two non-zero digits. RULE #3 - A terminal zero to the right of a decimal point in a number greater than one is significant. RULE #4 - A terminal zero to the right of a decimal point in a number less than one is significant. RULE #5 - A zero used to fix a decimal point in a number less than one is not significant. by Salim Reza
