# How do you figure how many significant figures a number has?

Generally speaking, one can't have more significant figures in the answer to a mathematical equation than the least number of significant figures of all the values used to gen…erate that equation. 6*6=40 6.0*6.0=36 For example: 1.1/2.3=0.478260869... But it doesn't make sense for the answer to have more significant figures than 2: 0.48. The point of significant figures is that the precision of the answer should reflect the precision of the factors that led to the answer. For example, suppose you were trying to measure the length of two pieces of string, with a ruler graduated down to millimeters. Lets say you wanted the sum of the length of the two strings. It would not make sense to express the sum in nanometers, because the precision of the measurements was in millimeter level. It would also be incorrect to express the sum in centimeters even if the result was a number with one or more trailing zeros, the measurements were accurate to 1 millimeter. 374mm + 626mm = 1000mm NOT 1 meter nor 100cm (but 1.000 meter, or 100.0cm)

# How many significant figures are in .0400?

Zeros must be kept to show the decimal point or to indicate that zero is a significant figure. In this question the 0.0 part of the number is to show the position of the decim…al point and does not form part of the significant figure count. If the number has been rounded to the nearest ten-thousandth then 0.0400 is correct to 3 sf. If the number can be rounded to the nearest thousandth then it would be written as 0.040 and would be correct to 2sf. If rounded to the nearest hundredth then it becomes 0.04 and is correct to 1 sf.

# How do you figure out how many significant figures are in a number?

The rules for identifying significant figures when writing orinterpreting numbers are as follows: All non-zero digits are considered significant. For example, 91 hastwo signif…icant figures (9 and 1), while 123.45 has fivesignificant figures (1, 2, 3, 4 and 5). Zeros appearing anywhere between two non-zero digits aresignificant. Example: 101.1203 has seven significant figures: 1, 0,1, 1, 2, 0 and 3. Leading zeros are not significant. For example, 0.00052 has twosignificant figures: 5 and 2. Trailing zeros in a number containing a decimal point aresignificant. For example, 12.2300 has six significant figures: 1,2, 2, 3, 0 and 0. The number 0.000122300 still has only sixsignificant figures (the zeros before the 1 are not significant).In addition, 120.00 has five significant figures since it has threetrailing zeros.

# How do you figure how many significant figures are in 235?

235 has 3 significant figures. This is because all three digits are non-zero numbers, and all non-zero numbers are considered significant.
