Rounding to significant figures
99.98 to 3 significant figures
Can it apply to this number as if I round to 100 this is one significant figure or we keep it as 99.9. Please clarify

And same number to 2 sig figure
Will it be 100? Or it stays 99
Round to 1 significant figure is 100 for sure .

  2. Thanks Scott. I get it about 100. By adding decimal point becomes 3 dig fig
    What about rounding 99.98 to 2 sig fig?
    100 will have one sig fig
