In an addition problem the answer should have the same number of significant figures as the measurement with the mot decimal places. True or False?
I say True.

PsyDAG,
If the total in the decimal places is zero, those places do not need to be included.
3.47531
+ .72469
______________
4.20000 = 4.2
Does that help?
