significant figures

the nuber 12,559 written correct to the three significant figures is?

Posted in Math, asked by raquel lima, 6 years ago. 2023 hits.


To write 12,559 to 3 significant figures you look at the first 3 numbers which in this case are 1, 2 and 5.

We then look at the number after the 3rd number, if it is larger than or equal to 5 you round up and if it is smaller than 5 you round down.

So in this case 12559 is 12600 to 3 signifcant figures.

Hope this answers your question. :)
