Significant Figures during Multiple Step Calculations

Postby Bianca Barcelo 4I » Sun Nov 04, 2018 1:42 pm

Hi, I was wondering if we keep all of our digits during multiple step calculations, and then we actually apply significant figures at the very end?

Yup, it's okay to use multiple digits in your calculations but just make sure to write your overall answer with the correct number of sig figs.

My TA told us to keep all the digits during the calculations and at the very end to consider sig figs
