**DrBob222**, Monday, February 3, 2014 at 12:48amFor a I would think it could be estimated to the nearest 0.5 mm which is 0.05 cm.

For b, the problem doesn't say what the digits mean; i.e., four-digit display of what length? If it is 1234 then it can be read to 1 in the last place, whatever that last place is.
