The problem is 150  1  0.182
Since the least sig. fig. is 1 would the answer be 1 x 10^3 ?Thanks

Well, it have no decimal places so I don't know how many significant figure should the answer be

150
1
 .182
The answer is 150. Since the zero in the one column is not significant, you cannot subtract the 1, nor the .182
Remember the problem is really this:
(150±5)(1±.05)(0.182±0.0005)
and the answer is...(150±5) which in significant figure notation is 150
