Homework Help: Chem

Posted by Coralie on Sunday, February 15, 2009 at 6:18pm.

Another confusing significant digit problem. I added 36.6 and 2.4, and divided the result by 4.803. The book says the answer is 7.91, but I don'[t see how that could be, since the lowest number of significant digits in the problem is two (2.4). I think the result should be 7.9, not 7.91. Why is this? Thanks ~Coralie.
