Homework Help: Significant figures

Posted by ~christina~ on Sunday, September 2, 2007 at 2:03pm.

How would I go and express these numbers with 3 significant figures in normal notation?

a)15.08
b)1444
c)83,909
d)0.524
e)0.0254

for d and e aren't they already with 3 significant figures and also in normal notation?

for a, b, and c I can't figure out what to do since It isn't explained how to get 3 significant figures in normal notation though I usually use scientific notation when questions like this come up.
