  1. (a) 87.073 -> 87.1 -> 90
    (b) 4.3621 -> 4.36 -> 4
    and so on

    what do you get?

  3. (e) 1.7777 -> 1.78 -> 2

    I have no idea what if there over? means.

    In each case, round to 3 digits, then round that result to 1.

    I'm a little confused when it comes to significant figures. Where it doesn't make sense to me is when zeros come before and after a number. For example: My book states that zeros that come before a digit are NEVER significant. Now
