Are sig figs important when doing these calculations?

I'm sure sig figs are important when doing the calculations in the textbook.

They shouldn't be anymore or less important than the topics we've covered in the past. However, they'll matter more on the test and/or in a lab.

sig figs are always important although he does not tend to mark down if they are wrong. If you stick to three, you usually cannot go too wrong.

Stick to the amount you are using in your equations and see if your answer matches the ones in the textbook.

One thing I would say is to wait to round with sig figs until your final answer!

Try to see what the lowest sig figs are in the problem given if that makes sense.
