    opps, I missed something earlier.

    In the case of adding numbers, you cannot make rightmost zeroes significant. adding...
    .627 + .049 makes a three digit number, since the thousands digit in both numbers is sig.
    .0395 + .006454 here is a problem. In this, the first number is sig to the thousandths, so the secnd number can only be added to that significance..
    .0395 + .0065= .0460 is a three sig number.
    Finally, the answer will be a 3 x 3 multiply, so the answer will be to three sig digits.
