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

  • Significant Figures - ,

    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
