The number of digits in a number is known as precision of a number. Depending on the precision required, the number is quantized to give the final number.

It has no precision, since there is no following number.

In mathematics, the word precision is used to describe the total number of digits (the number of significant figures) used in a number to approximate another number. For example, given a number 145.37823 the number 145 approximates the previous number with a precision of 3, and 145.3782 approximates it with a precision of 7. In other words, in maths, at least arithmetically speaking, precision is just another word for significant figures. In statistics, precision is usually a measurement of how well a measurement system gives consistent results, and is the reciprocal of variance.

Always the last number, so in this example the precision is to hundredths.

The precision is determined by the POSITION of the number 6 - NOT its value.

If a number is given to the true degree of precision, this is always determined by its last digit - in this case, 6.

the precision of the answer must have the same number of significant digits as the measurement with the least significant digits- the site explains the rules and how to identify significant digits
