In terms of accuracy of digits:
124 has 3 significant figures
26.3 has 3 significant figures
30 has 1 (or 2) significant figure(s)*
92.56 has 4 significant figures
Thus 92.56 km is the most precise (having the most significant digits).
In terms of the distance measured:
124 m is accurate to ± 50 cm
26.3 miles is accurate to (approx) ± 8047 cm
30 cm is accurate to ± 5 cm or ± 0.5 cm*
92.56 km is accurate to ± 500 cm
Thus 30 cm is the most precise (having the least range of distances that round to it)
* Depends if it has been rounded to the nearest 10 (30 ± 5) or 1 (30 ± 0.5)
In absolute terms, 30 centimetres is the most precise but in relative terms it is 92.56 kilometres.
2.54 centimeters or 2.03 miles or 32.45 degrees 92.56 kilometers
They are both units of measurement. A 100 centimeters equals a metre. They are equally precise.
it is the most precise form of measurement
No. An answer is only as precise as the least precise measurement from which it was calculated.
What determines how precise a measurement is
You could measure it in both. If you are looking for a precise measurement, use millineters. If you want a quick, general, easy-to-use answer, do centimeters.
a millimeter equals 10 centimeters, and 10 centimeters equals an inch. so you would take the inches and count the centimeters, then count 10 millimeter per centimeter
A CENTIMETRE equals 10Millimetre and so your ANSWER is 4X10 equals 40mm EXACTLY.
You can make a very precise measurement with a poorly calibrated device.
By unit of length and distance and conversion ,we can say that 1 km =1000 m metres are more precise than km
cups is less precise.
No. Accurate relates to how close the actual measurement the instrument measures. Precise relates to how much detail the instrument gives when measuring. They are independent to each other: An measurement can be precise and accurate (eg the value of π is 3.141592654) An measurement can be precise and inaccurate (eg the value of π is 1.733677432) An measurement can be less precise and accurate (eg the value of π is 3.14) An measurement can be less precise and inaccurate (eg the value of π is 1.73).
19.2cm is more precise
No, because a value measured 10 times can be very close to each other (precise) but very far from the actual measurement of the object.
An automatically measurement has a higher precision than a manually measurement.
The precise distance depends on the exact latitude where you make the measurement but it is approximately 3000 miles.
To be precise 5.08.
The distance between the above places is 6007 kms. This distance is point to point straight distance. The actual distance may vary according to the flight path chosen. Also this is not the airport to airport precise distance.
A measurement in pints is more precise.
They are equally precise.
2.5 cm is more precise.
Is as exact as possible
