I'm having trouble understanding significant figures. If a problem is requires two equations to finish, which of the original measurements do I use to figure out the significant figure? For ex. 3.001+4.32= 7.321. Then I use this answer for a different equation..for the final answer do I use the measurements for the second eq. or the first measurements?
