### Exact numbers in the final answers

Posted:

**Thu Oct 01, 2015 11:29 am**Hey guys,

While I did the homework over the summer I noticed that a lot of times I would come up with an answer of say 40.07, and the answer in the solutions manual would say something like 40.13. This probably has to do with discrepancies in the amount of sig figs used throughout all of the calculations made throughout the problem. I was wondering if anyone knew whether or not a discrepancy like this will be marked as wrong for the final answer of a quiz.

Thank you!
