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
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:
and the answer is...(150±5) which in significant figure notation is 150
